Saturday Stamper - Collage


This was the brief:

A collage (From the French: coller, to stick) is a work of art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. Use of this technique made its dramatic appearance among oil paintings in the early 20th century as an art form of groundbreaking novelty.
An artistic collage work may include
newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or hand-made papers, portions of other artwork, photographs, and such, glued to a piece of paper or canvas.


This is a celtic themed piece, and probably the largest image transfer I have ever done as its almost A4. Lots of celtic stamps in the backgrounds and a little celtic warrior stamped and embossed on vellum in the centre. The metal foil was stamped from behind and embossed, I distressed it with black ink. TFL.
