Jeez, this took longer than I expected: total size will be 16″x 20″:
It was really cold today, by Tucson standards, and it’s going to freeze tonight, so I couldn’t laminate the collage to silk organza (because the messy process is done in my backyard). I’ll have to do that after work one day this week when it’s warmer. Then I’ll have 2 in my series (the first is the prickly pear I made last month). I just made a stack of color photocopies of saguaro cactus; that will be the 3rd design in this series. Once all are done I’ll quilt them and then hopefully frame for a triptych.
I guess I’m sounding a bit confident: I’m assuming the above collage will laminate successfully, and that I’ll have similar success with the as-of-yet to be collaged saguaros. I’ll keep you posted!
