There's definitely a similarity of tone to last weekend's collages. I was working on "pushing back" different layers, and partially obscuring others, so most of the pieces have a hazy muted kind of look to them. It's a departure from my usual color frenzy and it was fun to explore.
(Terrie, you were asking about how effective the polymer medium/tack iron technique was with deli papers: both the aqua dots above and the yellow rays below were bits of painted deli paper.)
Thanks to Leslie for the vintage ephemera in this one:
The scan of this one didn't really pick up on the blue-ish nature of the the papers and paint.
This next one was done a piece of corrugated cardboard. The tack iron process didn't work as well on this surface. It didn't provide as firm a surface for ironing, and the pieces didn't stick as well as first. I had to apply more pressure with the iron, which then compressed the cardboard a bit and emphasized the ridges. (You can see the faint horizontal lines running throughout that no amount of paint can cover) Perhaps it wouldn't have mattered so much if collage papers had complete covered the base.
This next one kind of got away from me. I finally just had to stop.
This is the only piece in the bunch without any paint on top.
Guess I was just in a neutral kind of mood.
