Collage – Stamped Out

I had started this collage on a piece of cereal box a few weeks ago and had forgotten about it.  I found it and decided to finish it.  I was pleased with the background but not the girl.  This piece is collage papers, mainly old stamps, and lots of acrylic paint and oil pastels.  The girl was drawn and cut out from a sketch book.  I think the figure would meld into the piece better if I had drawn it directly onto the background.

    nice color; esp the purples and pinks blending together. Some of my fave tones.

    also nice work on the css … I bought the upgrade, but didn’t go as far as you with the hacking. Great job!

    Thanks for coming by…I’m not sure what you mean by “hacking”? If you come back by please explain what you meant. The only hacking that I know about is underhanded and harms others…I would never do that.

    The strip of stamps looks like windows to me. And I think the girl “melds” just right. I love that you used a cereal box. I’m working on some girls right now and they’re on a cracker box. It’s good to recycle!

    I love the background – I’m always afraid to use things like stamps because I’m convinced I’ll “need” them for something else later… 🙂

    Carley says she loves this girly. She was here for a moment and I showed her some of your work.
