These small pictures are all the same size, 25cms square and look lovely when hung together. Each collage is designed using layers of tissue paper on a cotton canvas board. Small pieces of paper are cut out with a scalpel. Detail has then been applied using pens and inks. The frame is wooden and painted with Farrow and Ball "Skylight" paint and then waxed for a soft sheen. The canvas boards have a gloss finish as they have been glazed to preserve colours. Each picture is only £28 each inc postage for UK buyers. If you would like to buy all three, message me and I will offer you a discount price!

Just finished this mixed media collage on canvas board. Its so new I can't think of a name for it? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Its built up from layers of tissue paper which have been cut out with a scalpel and glued down. The pattern emerges as I work, with a basic framework adapted as it progresses. Love textures and warmth, sheer escapism from the grey skies of autumnal Scotland.
Whilst it might be the sunniest, hottest day in August in England, today has again been rain and cloudy in Dunblane. However, inside the studio there is a riot of colour which feels like a comfort blanket! New collages are progressing. The collage on the right is called "Harvest Moon" and the left-hand picture is looking for a title. Any ideas?
A short walk to work for me! Although recently I have had to put the wellies on due to the monsoon weather......its a beautiful setting to work from!

Its been a long time since a blog post but I'm very excited to be working on some new collages which I just added to my online shop! Its wonderful to be working in my new studio and I love being creative again. Working with beautiful coloured tissue papers, inks and scalpel is a lovely and rewarding as the layers build up and the piece takes shape. Please get in touch if you would like any more info on the work or would be interested in displaying in your shop or gallery. Here is the link to the shop and I will be adding more work in the next few days so watch out! http://www.maureenmitchelldesign.com/my-shop.html
