"Faces of America" Mixed Media Collage 30" X 22" by mayah(c)2018; sides one and two
This art started out as one piece of off-white paper, 30" X 22", that I painted with red and blue acrylics a year ago. The paper was then folded in half, then into 8 sections. There is a slit along the main fold; the paper can be used as an art journal book, or a free-standing piece of art. The idea for how I was going to use the painted paper came to me a year ago, yet I didn't start to collage it until the beginning of this month. I had hoped to finish it in time for July 4th, but the hand embroidery took longer than I thought--I had to use a large needle to punch each individual hole, wearing a thimble to protect my fingers. Even so, I managed to poke my fingers and draw blood several times! Each of the eight panels is approximately 7.5" by 11", with images from magazines that I've cut out and saved during the year. Each image has hand embroidery around it, with either red or blue thread.
Laid out flat, the 30" x 22" paper has images that are upside-down on the upper half.
Fold in half lengthwise, and pull out the middle sections to form a 3-D stand up art piece with four sections on each side.
The back side of the art paper, showing the reverse of the hand embroidery. The art paper is thick and rips easily along the fold lines; on the back you can see multiple places where I had to repair it by gluing on pieces of waxed paper--strong yet flexible--over the tears.
