Trying Out Fabric Paper...and Another Collage
Continuing my journey in mixed media, I painted and stamped a canvas board, added some collaged papers and lace, and drew all over it with black ink. The brown shading is done with Conte crayon. The text at the lower right was on a bit of scrapbook paper. It is the first three lines from a poem by Thomas Campion:
There is a Garden in her face,
Where Roses and white Lillies grow ;
A heau'nly paradise is that place.
I chose to interpret the poem quite literally! I like the colors and layering on this one, but might do something about that big green leaf that is pointing to the lady's face.
