Clown 7.2 - Round Robin Exchange

Clown 7.2 - Round Robin Exchange
I found the checkered deli paper online and love the effect that it makes with papers that I made or altered.  Works for me. :-)

Clown 7.1 - Round Robin Exchange

Clown 7.1 - Round Robin Exchange

Nothing that I create has much of a plan.  I just start and it is all intuitive.  I did not plan which clown would go on which piece until all the backgrounds were finished.  Then I auditioned them on what I had created.  Auditioning is one of my favorite things to do in collage right after making backgrounds.

Clown 6.2 - Round Robin Exchange

Focal points.....odd numbers really does work.  This piece would look incomplete without the three main features.  Two would not have been enough.  Three seems to be optimal here.

Clown 6.1 - Round Robin Exchange

Clown 6.1 - Round Robin Exchange

Knowing that an art friend loves bears I had to add one to some of the collages in this series.  There is a balance in this collage that I really like.  Maybe it is the grid-ish-ness of the background.  Maybe it is the circles.  Maybe it is the placement of the images.  Perhaps it is all of the above! :-)  I do love the colors and maybe that is what ties it all together.

As I blog this series I study each piece and check out the techniques I used.  The blue lines were made with one of those bread closures dipped in paint.

Sometimes I prefer a background to contrast with the foreground.  It seems to work with both having the similar color palettes here.

Clown 4.2 - Round Robin Exchange

Clown 4.2 - Round Robin Exchange
The colors in this piece seem very lush to me.  Part of that is the result of using Stablio Woodies.  I love using those in my work.
