Stencil- and mask-printed papers push the door wide open to many possible applications ... new adventures and explorations.
One of my favorite applications is in developing collage.
Two of my recent collages were compiled using (for the most part) papers printed with my 9" x 12" Garden Montage L652. Both collages were assembled on 12" x 12" stretched canvases.
|Above: In the upper left, I included part of a red and green print made with 9" x 12" Longwood Florals Mask L675. In the upper right sits another partial print, this one made using 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Mask s658. Those two pieces were auditioned by didn't make it into either of the final collages.|
|The temporary glue-stick brand that I use now is Scotch, shown above. (Behind this glue-stick are scraps printed with three 9" x 12" stencils -- on the left side, Looking Up Through Trees L753; on the lower right side, Tangled Pods L344 ; and in the upper right, Nosegay Stencil L335.)|
|Above: This collage uses only prints made with Garden Montage L652, but the pieces on the far left and far right were printed atop earlier prints that had been made with Longwood Florals Mask L675. This double-print adds complexity that I like.|
|Above: This collage, on the lower left, includes a partial print created with 6" x 6" Quilted Flower Garden s237.|
