And The Beat Goes On

Documented Mixed Media #5

And The Beat Goes On - 12" x 16" canvas 

This past Saturday, I attended a Collage Workshop with well-known Timmins artist Catherine Cribbs.

We used recycled canvases, papers and prints from the teacher's stash as well as any of our own decorative papers and supplies.

These included Cathy's stamped papers and several type of prints, some of my own paper fabric, cheesecloth, scrapbook paper and previously painted paper and dyed paper towels, sparkles, ink, fabric and threads.

For inspiration, Cathy had us pick phrases and quotes from an envelope.  My was “And the beat goes on”.

My take was to go with repetition and hoped for some rhythm.

The morning was spent making large sheets of papers from tissue paper and a variety of papers and other items.  They were not dry enough to use then but can be cut up for  future collages.....or very possibly fibre art!

This was an informative and very fun workshop.

I will certainly be making more of these.

Linking up to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.

lovely work and great title for composition direction!
often I find a line in a song or title to be fitting to an art fabric piece!
