Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Maybe they're just boring, other times hopeless. I've been working with some of the those that are bit boring and cutting them in ways. I think I'll start trying to also cut and rearrange, collage, whatevah -- basically mixed media.
Here are a few examples:
|15 x 22. Cut and backed with black paper|
|14 x 17. Cut and backed with white paper|
This one of the left has one variation. I have cherry stain powder used in woodworking (I used to make furniture). I'll spread a bit of the stain powder and add a bit of water. It creates various shades of color as you see on the left.
I've also put it on a white background. I'm not sure which works better.
Lastly, the one below just follows the basic formula I described above.
|14 x 17|
