I took a workshop at Art and Soul last October with Karen Michel – Wood Collage Vignette's. I made this piece based on what we did in her class. My twist is that the background papers are handmade by me with acrylic paints. I then added: a filled bottlecap, rick rack, transistors, sequins, scrapbook paper, baker's twine, plastic netting, buttons, chipboard heart, lace paper, used stamp, fibers cabachons, skeleton leaf, hand carved stamp images, garment pin with beads, book text, punchinella, and beach glass.
This piece is called "61" and it was for my dad's (61st) birthday.
