Inspiration from Lisa Kaus - Collage

I've seen Lisa Kaus's work in several magazines including Somerset Studios. I am way too far from her studio in Oregon (I'm in Key West) to take one of her classes. I know from the articles that she uses wax and wax is certainly not a good option in the sub tropics. It doesn't set up. I decided I would just take inspiration and use my own sealers. She uses rather large embellishments, I prefer smaller ones. She is paler colors and I love BRIGHT colors. The Army collage was done for my Son.

Found Object Robots

My son recently sent me a couple of pictures of robots and wondered if I could do something similar. Well, never one to shy away from a challenge, I created 7 of them. Not too bad for my first attempt. Put them all on ebay since I really don't have room for any of them.
