Collages in Browns

 This is a new one just started.  Many of these are still in process, waiting for a transfer or something to tie them together, or for a "theme"

 I just added the brown string tissue paper across the bottom and like that so far...it has some of my walnut ink pen work from a workshop at the bottom.  Still in process...
 Not sure if I want the tree transfer- it was from a photo I took near my Mom, the collage depicts my Dad from a vintage photo of some kind of bike ride he took with a group and it looks like maybe in Michigan or around Lake Michigan.  I also have a bycycle that could be transfered if I can make up my mind.
 This has a photo taken in Tampa of a door to a post office!

Colorado Springs Trip

 Nice family photos of Mike and Vicky, and grandsons Nadan and Connor.

 I loved the tree and roots growing out of the rocks.

 Huge rock formations we stopped to see at Garden of the Gods.

New Collage Artwork

 This piece is almost finished but I have a quote I want to add.  Not my usual choice of colors but I started with the yellow paste paper at the bottom.
 This too needs something, maybe a transfer on the right.
We worked on leaf monotypes in collage class.  They are done on a type of rice paper that will be nice to use in collages.
