I also decided to incorporate a technique I learned at my last workshop at the Pullen Art Center: sewing the paper together instead of gluing. Our instructor had suggested sewing paper together on monotype print and I have also seen some artists sew paper art to mat board. The result of my project is three mixed media collages which actually look like paper quilts. Below are pictures of the project; let me know what you think.

New art project: Mixed Media Collages
August was a busy month for me at work and I did not have time to work much on my art. To rest from all the hard work, I took a week vacation for my birthday (9/2); rested a lot and also worked on some art projects. My last blog was about paper making and I had the idea to use the handmade paper for a collage. I had made collages before using paper I painted with acrylic paint and decided to do the same but using my handmade paper.
