I’ve wanted to make a collage a la Finnabair (Anna Dabrowska) for a long time. Finally did so yesterday with an artist friend. Really happy with how it turned out. At top is the finished collage. At the bottom is how it looked after gluing up, but before painting.
Here’s a book I made in Book Arts 1 at Santa Fe Community College two years ago. The instructor was Marci Ross Easterbrook. The “tapes” are leather and canvas. The canvas and paper were spray painted with acrylic paint and stencils. I often use an analogous color scheme in my work; it just seems more pleasing to me.
