An idea, a project, even a life comes to a point where you are ready to fly!
In this mixed media collage I have used a beautiful sandy gray heavy duty canvas and brown kraft paper as my base, with gouache (opaque watercolor) I have added my bird and some background, I have used markers and gouache for some color accents and then I have stitched the whole image in a very freehand way on my machine, with added pieces of fabric and as the very last touch, freehand embroidery.
I have then stretched the collage/mixed media piece on a piece of marine plywood, this makes it ready to hang and at the same time, it protects the back of the piece. It does not need framing, or to be behind glass, but of course, you decide how you would like to present your collage!
This is a unique piece of art, I have stitched my initials on the front and signed and titled the work on the back (see photo)
The actual size of the stitched, collaged and embroidered piece is
44 cm x 33cm ( 17,5"x 13")
I ship from my studio in Denmark and the collage comes flat, as it is protected by the piece of plywood (it would have to be a VERY strong post person to bend this one ;o)
I send it with tracking as it is an original piece of art.
You can of course let me know if you want it gift wrapped!
Thank you so much for visiting in my shop, and warmly welcome back!
