I have another friend's birthday coming up early next month. Here is the card I made for her. This is an original collage on card stock.
The difficulty I have been having with collage, is finding the right glue that allows me to glue papers of different thicknesses and porosity without distorting or warping the papers. The answer: rubber cement. Finally. Now I feel I can really move forward and free up the creativity within now that I have put that technical problem behind me.
Incidentally, the card shown here (glued with rubber cement) is for the friend who suggested rubber cement to me. She said that's all they used in art college.
