My Collage: Marilyn Monroe
I made this 5 x 7 inch collage a few weeks ago. I made it then cut it into four pieces to become four artist trading cards.
This was made while in that wonderful creative flow zone while listening to music. I just relaxed and let the collage put itself together while I sifted through my ephemera.
background is tissue paper that came with a new pair of mens shoes (replica of stock quotes)
Marilyn Monroe images from a book that got water damaged and mildew-y
book and watch image from gift wrap paper which a mail art swapper gave me
hand and drink from junk mail
butterfly die cuts (punches) of magazine pages
garden image from a garden seed mail order company (junk mail)
two images from a UNICEF mail order catalog that I used a square die cutter (punch) to cut from
orange-ish piece is a photograph from my wedding that I altered with bleach
Scraps from other projects:
map images with white gesso painted on the top
purple tissue paper
