I've been busy these past few weeks- engaged in completing artwork which I will share in the near future. In the mean while, here is a mixed media series I've been working on using old stamps - and what better way to continue their usefulness than to give them new life as the centerpiece of my art.
I've used many layers as accents to the main subject of the stamp! For those who are history buffs, the infamous postage stamp's history can be seen here.
The background for the work below is heavy duty watercolor paper, topped by bought decorated paper, topped by wood from Hawaii, covered with an old envelop topped by a piece of wood with this stamp from France added on top.
This work starts out with rubber stamped paper topped with a page from an old book covered with a piece of cloth covered by a piece of suede topped by wood and then this stamp from New Zealand.
This artwork starts out on heavy duty water color paper topped with a textured paper topped by two layers of printed paper with a top layer of wood and then this postage stamp from Romania.
