"Dizzy Lizzie", an Original Collage/Painting/Assemblage - Sold

Original Mixed Media Collage, Direct From the Artist's Studio! Modern, Contemporary, Upscale, Tiny, Small, Miniature, Mini, Vibrant, Colorful, Brilliant, Bright, Geometric, Hippie, Boho, Psychadelic and Fun are just a few adjectives that describe it. The first step in creating this piece was hand painting colorful dyes onto Strathmore Bristol Board. The dye paintings were created intuitively using abstract expressionist techniques. Then I cut up the hand dyed papers and did the tiny spin painting in metallic lumiere paints. Then I collaged the painting and paper together to form the final composition you see here. After that I added the embellishments- eyelets, hanging fringe with lots of beads, flowered ribbon, and a bright red button. The piece has a protective coating of varnish on it. It is all ready to hang and enjoy! :)
