Reverse Collage on Vinyl

Another lesson from the Mixed Media Collage class I'm taking online. This was something brand new to me! It's a collage on vinyl, sort of a "deconstruction". Everything is done in reverse. You work backwards so that the background pieces go on last, and then paint is added as the final step on any clear area. So, you are looking at it through the vinyl.

I rubber stamped in the right bottom corner and also one of the eyes. I then stamped the other eye on deli paper and flipped it. I save all of my used palette paper, and I cut some of it up to use, as well as lace, gold on netting, small paper bits, tissue paper, small shiny squares, etc. I used deli wrap shapes, but you can't really see them, I think because my color is dark. I tend towards dark, deep colors, so I'm not disappointed they don't show. 

Another thought, having never done this before, I found it hard to get started. I think I let it intimidate me. But once I got started, I was having a lot of fun! There are some things I would do differently, but all in all, I'm pretty pleased with it!


  1. I think it's very pretty, Rebecca. Plus, it's cool learning new techniques!

  2. It's absolutely marvelous! I love your colors and it is rich in textures. Very very nice! Love you!
