My previous attempt at using my own art for collage left me with some issues:
1. the first being that all the texture under the paper collage caused the paper to look like it had folds or wrinkles – I didn’t like that,
2. and secondly – my copies were not archival quality, even though I color pencil painted them again and sealed them with UV acrylic varnish.
So, I’ve decided to try a different approach – acrylic medium transfer. Using my original black & white art – copied on inexpensive paper and colored pencil painted. My Gardener has volunteered to assist me in this endeavor.
