ICAD # 7, 8, & 9 Collaging Like Crazy

ICAD #7 is a collage from bits that were leftover after cutting more stuff for a series of paintings I'm working on. It was fun to scan it in and fiddle with it a bit. Curious how the inverted colour thing works... Now I know.

ICAD #8 is another quasi-experimental adventure. I was painting some of the paper fish I'd made for a larger painting and had some "excess" so I painted my IC after adding the scrap fodder from other cut papers. It is an interesting and fun challenge to make a wee collage using leftovers. Then the writing was just some things I wanted to remind myself to remember [essential things I seem often to forget]. And I wanted to practise/play more with Picasa's mats and frames so this was a good way to DO that!!

My ICAD #9 is one of my crazyfish collages. I pretty much paint with paper and for the series I've been at for awhile Now, I am "under the sea" so I am making collage within collage a LOT. I find these really cool fish and then I create other fish and collage the lot, sometimes ending up with some weird and wily critters!!! Such is the case here... No fiddling at all with this one... Crazy Enough already!!

More To Come & FUN BEing Had!!!

Very cool stuff. Love your flying fish! I haven't been keeping up with the ICAD as I was preparing for the WRF art show. I may try to get back into it :).
Stay inspired!

I've been doing a lot of collage this week too. Fun stuff. I love the abstract quality of these and the colors are excellent.
