Godey's Ca. 1861 Images
I have been spending many hours creating these collages...they are so-o-o much fun! I start with a blank canvas, paint, stain, distress, and stamp it to make it look old and used. I then scan vintage images, re-size, give it a patina, then print and distress with alchohol inks, stamps, etc. Cutting out the images is very time consuming, but I grew up with paper dolls and enjoy this part of the process. Placement comes next, then remove everything and start pasting! I seal the image several times, then make my own frames. Any collagers out there?
