As a child I can remember going on long trips to Melbourne by train . For lunch we would go to Coles cafeteria for a delicious ice cream sundae with fruit, jelly and lashings of chocolate or strawberry syrup.  Topped off with nuts, cream and fruit.

Collage Tutorial 10. Torn Posters and Painted Papers.

IMG_20131119_143700s

I used many layers of a poster I found on the ground in Paris with handmade painted papers and acrylic gel. I sanded in between leaving torn paper and scratches in areas. My interest in this piece is the quality of the surface. During the process I made marks with permanent pens and acrylic paints.  Gluing on torn papers and tearing off with sanding.
