Collage no paint

Playing with the idea of collage with no paint.  Using recycled materials and a new image card from Tim Holtz “found relatives” sanded.  Vintage fabric, a tiny bit of washi,one magazine image strip, some hemp cording and gelli printed fabric strips of my own.  Nice exercise in “no paint”.  Could these be your relatives?

Lucky Star is on the horizon and I will be mostly off-grid.  I will sneak in a few posts to keep you entertained and maybe a photo or two if I can find some air waves. It’s so nice to have a Superhero tending the home fires(we will be heading into cold weather) while I head back into summer.  The muse is slowly returning, thankfully, the farmhouse consumed every bit of energy I could muster, but the next phase, the living in it and the move from vanilla to color will continue for the better part of a year I suspect. I will pop in on my return and try and catch up to everyone.  Happy weekend. Thanks for visiting and I will see you soon.

    wonderfully creative Corrine! I love the idea of doing something with a limited number of material- just once though! heehee after all, I have so many to use- might just as well!
    I do love this piece and at first , thought maybe it was you and your Superhero!
    Enjoy your warmer weather and I look forward to seeing what fine pieces and fun times bring forth! xoxo

    Ah, the things you can do and the art you can make from bits and pieces that are “lying around”. This is quite a challenge, I might try this one day.
    I really like it, love the bits of fabric. It’s a happy little artwork.

    This is really cool. I love how you used the cardboard with the soft torn edges.

    Here I just got back online and you are leaving me! That can’t be! OK, guess it has to be. However, before you go, I just want to say how much I adore your collage that doesn’t include paint. And no, those are not MY relatives (grin).

    Love the fabric you used. I can’t remember where Lucky Star is…Texas? How wonderful to finally get to live in the farmhouse. You’ve worked your fingers to the bone I know!

    This is beautifully put together! I’m sure you’ll be having a wonderful time and look forward to hearing all about it on your return!

    I like this and feeling of nostalgia it raises. This gives me some ideas fro old family photos I have kept in a drawer for too long.
    Enjoy Lucky Star!

    I really love the shape/asymmetry of this piece. Hope you have a fabulous, rejuvenating time at Lucky Star.

    Lovely piece and I thought they were your relatives!
    Playing with fabric and paper is always fun.
    Enjoy your exciting getaway Corrine.
    Happy November

    Have a great trip and soak up some sun for me. Love your fun artwork, I hope someone claims the couple as family. Wouldn’t that be something?

    Great ‘no paint’ collage. yeah, I am wondering who are those people and what is their story. nice and imaginative piece. Big, big hugs to you!

    I really like this departure for you (in art and in actuality, wink wink) the stacked cardboard relieved with a bit of fabric is clever but even better, it draws you in to the photo. Great fun!

    Have a fun time at Lucky Star.

    During busy times, it is always good to find even a bit of time to create, Corrine! Thanks for sharing this “no paint” work of art. I happen to love it. I have been taking a break from painting until after the New Year, at which time I will find out if I can paint! I know you will enjoy your Lucky Star gig, and your students will certainly benefit from your willingness to share your talents! Mwah!
