Latest Skinny Page - May 2010

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today I finished off the first side of a page I am making this month for Rande Hanson, one of the artists in my 'larger' skinny page project. She requested "Grunge".  I decided to borrow from Kurt Cobain's song "Come as You Are" as the inspiration for this collage, since Nirvana was one of the original Grunge Bands.   It's a cut and paste collage with a layer of beeswax that I applied over each piece before I glued them on.  I am planning to add some wire to the grommets, but thought I'd scan it prior to that final step.

Come As You Are - 4 x 8 inch beeswax collage

Come As You Are - Image Credits:  Tumblefish Studio @ www.DeviantScrap.com for all images with the exception of the German text and background - both from vintage books.

Update - Here's the back/front  now together....ready to mail.

I love that song (it´s probably my favourite from Nirvana), and your skinny is wonderful.

This will turn out great with the grommets. I love using wax in my work too.

Love this piece !!!
Also really like your concept of beeswax applied before you glue -
so you separate the layers a bit.

Bravo, Trudi!

Jjj
