Abstract Collage With Maple Leaf

                             

I'm back to making a series of small collages, and am feeling an autumnal vibe.  This one has my favorite things in it, a bit of a map, parts of a dictionary page, old notebook paper, altered National Geographic pages, and a tiny maple leaf that fell out of a magazine I saved.  The textured paper with small squares is actually a bit of wallpaper sample, covered with gesso and then drawn into with a hair pick.  I also have a bit of newspaper covered with white gesso and then stamped with a ginko leaf.

I love the overall colours you have used here and the collaged items you have added.

Very nice...do you put that on a canvas?

Thanks!

No, the papers are fused to 140 lb. watercolor paper. There is a white boarder so the piece can be matted and framed. The size works in an inexpensive record album frame, such as can be found at Hobby Lobby.
