What new creations have come up since my new theme "Alive in Paradise?"
Sculpted Handmade Paper Flowers
Collaging for 20 years still continues to be fun but making some of the elements come alive by sculpting them is even more fun and very exciting. Here I have formed copper wire modules, such as petals, in this case, wrapped them in handmade paper and inserted them through the picture for added security.
These are then textured in my usual didactic way. This manual labor is what I bring to you in this photo.
Next, I have added copper wire paper wrapped leaves and inserted them into the border and also textured them to blend with the art. This feature protrudes from the art giving it that extra life. This art is not just a paper collage anymore. It is a handmade paper mixed media assemblage.
