Art Sent By Mail: Ruby Cross Collage

Old Los Angeles Broadway by Ruby Cross, collage on illustration board, 4″ x 4″

Ruby Cross surprised me with this lovely collage ACEO!  I was feeling pretty down and the spontaneous arrival of original art was a major delight.  Ruby has been experimenting with using translucent layers in collage, especially by taping tissue paper to a piece of regular paper and running it through a computer printer then layering it with Modge Podge paste.  This collage has a lot of depth in person, you can see the translucent or transparent layers floating over each other.  The sheet music pattern is continued on the reverse.

See Ruby’s online store here for unique collage papers and her art.

I watched a video tutorial she sent me on a basic method for printing on tissue paper.  She advised me that people like to do this with higher priced Japanese tissue paper but she is using regular old dollar store white tissue paper.  I think I will try this method with a piece of Unryu mulberry bark paper soon to see how it works with a textured paper.
