Collage #53

Collage #53 is more upbeat than the last 2 collages (Collage #51 and #52). Still a bit chaotic but in cleaner and brighter colors. 

First, I stained the journal paper with water soaked bleeding tissue paper. Once the bleeding tissue paper dried, I removed it to revealed the wonderfully stained journal paper. I love the shapes! It looked a bit unfinished so I added green and yellow acrylic paint splattered over the whole piece. The layering of paint and stain may look chaotic but in a happy way!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I like this a lot. It is not at all chaotic. It is reminiscent of Karen Rips' View(s) Within. The way the whitish areas go across the page makes this looks as if it could be an abstract spine

  2. Thanks, Linda! The reason I think this collage looks chaotic is that I'm use to less cluttered artwork. I'm trying to think of a way to get this stained look on fabric.
