As 2008 approached I wanted to finish the last pieces of art from 2007. They are both mixed media collages with many layers to them. I use a Golden product medium to glue and seal the different elements together. The collages contain, handmade and scrapbooking papers, book boards, gold foil and flakes, translucent over lays, a twig, ribbon and beaded garland. Both are framed in shadow boxes.
