LETTERS MINGLE SOULS


This is one of my very first efforts at collage, and it is the only one I will show in this blog that was an effort to copy a piece from a magazine. I fell in love with "Letters Mingle Souls" as shown in Somerset Studios magazine. I bought the very same stamps and followed the directions.

In the process, it came out differently enough so that it can stand on its own. Consequently, I do think it is valuable for magazines to print directions along with the art they publish. If nothing else, one learns new techniques.

The photo is of an "instant ancestor", found at a flea market. I used real postage stamps, and an actual sealing wax seal in the bottom right-hand corner.
