The baby in the upper left corner is my maternal great grandmother. Next to her is my maternal grandmother. Besider her is my mom. And down in the lower left corner is me. Aren't I cute? LOL I even gave myself rosy cheeks. :-)
This is my next collage, again, a 5x7 canvas board. It started out with some fabric paper of letters and postcards. I used water soluble oil pastels to shade the images. But, after moving things around and playing for quite some time, I ended up purchasing some more images so I could find the focal picture of the small boy. He ended up covering up my great shading job! I wonder why I am so hooked on French images lately?
This is the third and final project I completed in the class. I used a 4" chipboard square as the base. I was just experimenting and now know that I want to gesso the cardboard before collaging. I wasn't too thrilled with the dark gray color showing through. I did add the red pastels to help hide it and I like the effect.
