Red Butterfly- Collage on Canvas This collage was made with layer upon layer upon layer of stamping. I tried out some dark colors, but I didn't like them. Tried some white overprinting which seems to work. The center paper was from a different project, but I diluted the green and put it overtop of the red. I "auditioned" ( thanks, Lenna) a number of subjects for the center, but settled on the red butterfly. To hold it all together, I added green lines connecting and going off of the canvas. I will have to experiment more with using dark colors. I did learn that a paper printed with the same colors can be added to give coherence. After I put it up on the wall, I liked it. Lots going on, maybe too much! What do you think, peps?
