August 24, 2008 Whimsical Collage


"Come To Alice's Dinner" Another in my second
series of collages - these are whimsical, they are not what you might expect and
sometimes require a second look. This collage measures 5" x 7", postcard format,
and is created with founds papers mounted on 120# watercolor paper.
This was an exercise in
putting together unusual combinations - to make it whimsical. I changed not only
faces but sometimes facial features. I was limited by my choice of papers I
could use - there was no perusing through the magazines - I had to use the
collection of found papers in front of me, This fabulous period photo just cried
out - Alice in Wonderland. I have a deck of miniature playing cards that added
the perfect touch.
