Art Class - Week 2

Starting with rosin paper as a background, I made a collage with fabrics, gift wrap and other small pieces of paper, adhering them with matte medium. 

The next step was to cover the entire surface with gesso. 

The lettering is from pre-cut scrapbook paper.  I glued each letter 5 layers thick so they really pop out from the background.
Using non-copywrited clip art from my computer, I traced a sunflower onto artist tissue paper and added it to the collage.  I cropped my design to fit around the lettering and sunflower.

In class next week, I will add color and details.
