"Yankees Collage" Continued - *Spoiler Alert*

Moving right along with my Yankees collage. I'm loving the creative process and the results, so I'm going to do a series of 3 collages. Below are the results of : cutting several pieces of acid free tissue 8 1/2 x 11, glue sticking the edges of card stock, laying the tissue on top, and running it thru my printer. There was a tiny bit of running on the red logo, but nothing that won't be hidden under several more layers of paint, anyway. I cut out the logos, and used Golden Soft Gel to adhere to the canvas. I edged them with some Paynes Gray to blend.

Printed Lou out on an Apollo Ink jet printer Transparency. Painted the back of his face and neck with Titan Buff. He's not glued on yet, I still have numbers and words and I'm thinking of having another player standing on his shoulder.
Let me know what you think!!

  4. Hi Susan: I am new to your blogg, found you thru a friend of a friend regarding making paste papers. Love your art and your color choices in all you do, have gone back to your older posts, especially where you took a class from my latest artist-guru, Albie Smith. the little book you made for your sister's wedding was fabulous, that is what I love to do most, make little books with all kinds of different papers, paint, stamps, etc. for gifts. Love this yankee collage too, it reeeallly rocks : )
