I am so pleased to announce that my Citra Solv® collage ‘Citra Autumn’ recently was a runner-up in the “Falling into Art” contest sponsored by Citra Solv®. I am grateful for this award! This is the first time I have ever created a scene in collage, and I found it fascinating, but a bit challenging. It reminded me of a jigsaw puzzle, trying to find just the right color and texture in my stash of altered National Geographic™ pages. I used a black sheet of Arches cover paper for the base sheet and left some of the paper showing to create line and emphasis. I also drew some of the tree limbs with a dark Pitt pen. Maybe someday I will create something that will win a place award. It is always fun to have a goal isn’t it?
