Crazy-in-Love with Collage

I do a lot of watercolor and decided to mix it up this week and do something a little different for a change. Secretly, I've always been just a little bit *crazy-in-love* with collage. I adore the depth and layers it brings to art work... and the unique one-offness you get using clippings & items of found ephemera that are hard (next to impossible)  to duplicate.

I've been playing around this week, experimenting with torn papers and glue and then color as I add transparent layers of paint over the top. Here are a couple I've been working on...

Wishing you a week full of creative play!
