Here is a little video
on some of my
for creating a successful mixed media collage..
of course there are so many things
that contribute to successful work..
I would love to take longer to
talk about why a piece is successful..
but here are my quick thoughts..
to elaborate on the video..
1. Texture, texture, texture
2. Main image or focal point- composition
3. Small conversation
4 Large conversation
Texture can be achieved in a million different ways..
The main image or the focal point of the collage can be small, but the composition
must be cohesive..
The small and large conversation can be as simple as small and large print..
or small and large detail.. the large conversation is seeing the basic composition
from far away and as you get closer there is interest that holds your attention..
finally.. unification ties the piece together, brings all the different elements into focus, and can be done with color, paint, or similar elements..
Have a spectacular weekend
