The theme for Collage Obsession this week is 'Faces'. Life is busy just now, and I am cheating a little by using a piece I made a few weeks ago, just for the fun of it, so I hope you will forgive me.
Painted paper 'doily' collage,
magazine image background 8"x8"
I started out by wanting to make a 'cut-out doily' as we did when we were children, but with a completely random shape rather than a circular repeat pattern.
I kept folding the paper in completely different directions to cut out small shapes, which produced this result. Then I didn't know what to do with it, so I stuck it over the magazine photograph. Only then did I think of painting it - definitely not planning ahead.
Yes, that's Johnny Depp's eye peeping through a space that seemed to have been designed for him to look through.
Before seeing the Collage Obsession theme for the week I had decided to link this simple piece of paper cutting with with Manon's papercrafting challenge Paper Saturdays, so I shall be linking up Manon too.
