I mentioned awhile back here at carolkroll.com that I learned the hard way about not putting varnish directly on one’s paper collage without adding a medium to it first. This is a slide of the piece that came out of that hard (ridiculous) lesson. I see I spared the back of the piece that fate. This was a cheap framed 1930’s illustration that I picked up at the thrift store and then added collage to it. I think I also mentioned how much of an idiot I felt when I did this because my 20 year old self should have known better, but it’s all about the journey now isn’t it.
