Layers of hand cut vintage paper from old books, catalogues and other ephemera create a one-of-a-kind framed abstract Christmas collage artwork for yourself or a friend.
Titled 'Christmas', this piece is a poetry of winter colors, angles and memories. The collage is adhered to a piece of heavy watercolor paper and framed.
Every collage made is unique and different. Yours is signed and dated and placed in a black wooden frame; it will be carefully wrapped for protection and shipped in a rigid mailing envelope.
Inspired by stacks of discarded old books and papers with interesting text, images, graphics and history, old books are deconstructed, then bits and pieces are hand cut and sorted by color. I'll experiment with the design until I create an aesthetically pleasing arrangement. After the design has rested for a few days, I will return and adjust if needed. Oftentimes, ink, pencil and thread are added to provide additional interest and texture.

Great condition! Remember, the inherent nature of handmade collage art is the charm and imperfection of the ingredients used. You will see loose threads, bumps, and surface wear that are all part of the design.
