Artist: Christine Cox

Note: This collage was done using magazine cut outs, a postcard (the woman's face) and a sheet of music. The background was painted with acrylics. All the shadows were added digitally after the piece was scanned.

Artist: Christine Cox

Note: This collage on canvas was made for an art exchange. It is 12" X 12" (but the whole thing wouldn't fit on my scanner bed). It was painted with acrylics, sprayed with webbing spray and watch parts were glued on using Diamond Glaze (which is one of my favorite dimensional glues).

The bottom left element is made with my version of the direct to paper technique. The top right element is made by putting various colors of embossing powder on embossable acetate sheets, heating and then cutting apart. There are also Beedz, gold flakes (for paper making), AIG (ultra fine glitter) and a rhinestone on the card.

This collage was created by a team of fantastically creative and talented women. Thank you for viewing it (and thanks to the ladies who created it, Jaimee, Sheryl, me and Bonnie).

I like this collage so much that if you click on it, you can see an even bigger picture of it so that you can see the details.

Notes: Some of the collage elements are: embossed shelf liner, real pansies, fabric, pine sprig, laminated sheets, rubber art stamping painted with interference paint, beads, mulberry paper, paper twist, metallic rub-ons, mica chips (Perfect FX).
