I have always loved to work in collage and I love the way that layers look. When painting, I often write or collage on my wood or canvas and then paint on top of it. I find that this adds a lot of texture as well add a sense of mystery. I carefully decide what areas of the back ground collage I want to show through and be revealed through the top layer and image. I use all sorts of collage material- movie tickets, receipts, notes, list, journal entries, newspaper articles and sometimes even trash!
