31 Days of Collage #10

31 days of collage #10

|Collage 10 of 31|

Soar- digital collage using vintage magazine scans, vintage postcards, patterned paper scans, books scans, textures and stamps.

Today I wanted to play around with textures again, seeing how many elements I could overlap without overcrowding the overall image. The main aircraft image is from a 1937 aircraft race programme, I duplicated it at different sizes to see if I could effectively use a single image to create a dynamic subject matter.

International Postcard Show 2016

1] Sightseeing, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

2] Together, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

Two postcards I sent off to Nottingham for Surface Gallery’s International Postcard Show. Both postcards have a base of paper ephemera- a mixture of train tickets and car park ticket stubs with acrylic ink, watercolour and ink pens. Together has found vintage anatomy images- the heart in the middle has also been cut apart and hand stitched together with black thread.

Will be nice to start off this year with an exhibition with artists from around the world.

First Set of Postcards

journey_postcard railtravel_artpostcard shipbreaking_postcard

Three completed art postcards.

All are mixed media and are standard 4×6 postcards with space for writing, address and stamp on the reverse.

The actual postcards obviously don’t have a watermark on them but will be signed by me.

I really would like to use these for an art swap with fellow artists- if you’re interested please email me at info@rachelmassey.co.uk
