Hybrid collage


Recommended Posts

I had fun putting this together. I think the hands look gawd-awful large but oh well, too late. The glue hadn't quite dried on one part when I took this picture.

This is so cool.  What did you attach it to?

A 12x12 canvas which I painted a brownish shade then dabbed bits of gold onto it. I inked all cut edges a bit (some more than others). Then used ModPodge to attach the layers one by one (added a few things like the doily, burlap, and twine). 

One thing I learned doing this: 12x12 digital is a little bit big for a 12x12 canvas. Next time I think I'll resize the file to 11x11 and save as a new file before I print the layers. It was a lot of work but all the cutting was actually relaxing. I really loved doing this digitally first, and very little waste as I was able to print everything onto just 3 sheets of paper.

It's so pretty!
