Today I go for oranges and yellows.
Instead of cutting this 3x9" piece into three squares and then adding 2-3 pieces of collage to each, as was the case yesterday, I add collage pieces before cutting. The collage elements come from a leftover segment of a larger painting I worked on weeks ago, a painting I divided into five pieces and from which I made four paper prayer bookmarks for my cousins. I use the remaining straggler today in my current project.
Then I cut this new project into 3-inch squares and add line. In the first, black ink passes electrical current from one collage element to the next.
In another, wax pastels in three shades lasso the central bit of collage.
In the final piece, gold ink accentuates shapes … and the square goes on to say Happy Birthday!
