This collage measures 20" X 16". I had such fun working on this piece. It was everything I love: tearing paper, painting, gluing, cutting, writing and using washi tape. I am determined to use more words of faith in my art work. I started by painting the canvas with gesso. I then added some magenta, ochre and sky blue (Heavy Body Acrylic paints by Dina Wakely) randomly around the canvas. I wrote 1 Corinthians 13 on vellum. Then I tore
the vellum piece into pieces and glued them randomly around the canvas. I used a stencil and sprayed ink on it and moved it around the canvas. I added torn pieces of decorative papers to the canvas. I added two bright pink doilies and one ivory one diagonally across the center of the canvas.
Next I tore strips of decorative washi tape to several areas of the canvas. I used a calligraphy brush pen to write the words: faith, hope and love on the canvas.
I spritzed some magenta ink onto tissue papers, drizzled glue around on it and crushed it into three different pieces to add to one side of each heart. I cut three hearts from some of my postcards I had purchased from 7gypsies.
After the tissue pieces dried, I added them to the hearts and trimmed them to fit. Then I adhered the hearts to the doilies. I sealed the canvas with a clear acrylic sealer, matte finish.
