Continuing with Burdz in Niches
My next step was to add the bottom layer of collage - all black and white (or off white) - mostly for texture, and a little bit for the images. I tried to concentrate the darker pieces towards the top and tried also to balance the browner, that is, the more aged, pieces across the whole.
I also made some little pennant pieces that I will decorate and then make little banners from to hand from beneath the niches. For those, I started with a piece of Strathmore mixed media paper and glued some of the same papers I used for this layer of collage on both sides. I stuck with the lighter pages. Then I cut the banner pieces from that. To glue the papers on, I used a Mini Collage Glue Stick from www.rangerink.com. I really like this glue stick because it doesn't buckle the paper.
