I found an old 'Vogue' book at Tynemouth market yesterday and started a couple of postcard pieces yesterday.

One is of a young Joan Collins and the other an Italian actress called Silvana Mangano

I love Brian Kasstle and Johns at Artjuvenations work and have tried to make a couple of small pieces based on some of their postcards swap work...............

These have many layers...
Wax crayon
Dylusions spray ink
Spray ink with stencils
Gesso with stencils
Water soluble pastel onto the gesso
Vogue image collage
Tissue collage
Tar gel with gold acrylic through stencil
Bird and word collage
Scratchy pen writing
