My latest workings :)





Torn paper collage owls I made for my mom's Christmas present. The scanner gives them rainbow feathers... the magazines have some sort of scanner protection built in... oh well. Gives the little fellas character .

I think you should do some more birds of prey.

Wow, what a neat way to make use of scraps of paper. I love it!

He shows every bit of control over that medium that anyone else here has over any other medium. He really has made it into art.

I never said that he didn't. I just thought it was very brilliant of him to take something that most people wouldn't think to use and turn it into very lovely art.

This way of communicating set us up for misunderstanding. I never meant to attack you. I was agreeing with you.

Hey thanks for the compliments . I think I might work on making words say something on a future collage. And the Birds of prey idea sounds cool. I am finishing up a frog collage right now, I did something different with it's background, cross your fingers!

There are various artist online who have made torn paper collages, some call them mosaics, others torn paper paintings.

This Puffin took me over a month to make. I just got done with it a few days ago. I'll have to upload the frog sometime... but for now, Puffin! Enjoy. Oh, by the way, how much would you price a picture like this? I'd like to sell some, and I don't have a clue what art like this goes for.
