I wanted to make a larger piece to enter in a couple competitions. This "Surf Sifter" is 24"H x 18"W showing a great blue heron in the surf. I made the collage of the bird using 3 filtered photos cut into quarter inch strips. Then I added irregularly cut shapes of green handmade papers along the edge to give the feel of seaweed in the surf.

I'm experimenting with taking photos of collages I did years ago, running filters on them, printing those out and cutting into strips to make new and different art! I'll show the original art and the new version pieced together in strips.
I cropped an image of a flower garden tighter than a previous use of the image. Then I ran 4 filters in Prisma and cut the prints into irregular shapes. A few pieces of handmade papers found their way into this 12"x12" collage, too.

This 12" x 12" piece features a happy bee sipping his supper. I made one filtered version of the photo in Photoshop and 3 in Prisma. I cut them into irregular shapes and combined to reform the image, and added in some handmade papers, too.
