Tore out text and pictures from a medical journal and glued them onto a canvas base with diluted gloss gel medium. Also glued on white on white fabrics and scribbled with water soluble wax pastels, then brushed with water to blend colors. Also glued embossed wallpaper and sponge brushed on an additional coat of gloss gel medium on top of everything and embellished with trims.
The fabric paper collage is for my husband, a Pathologist. It also combined Ellen Lindner’s collage technique and 2 challenges. One is for the Adventurous Quilters that challenged us to use paper in our work and another for the Fast Friday online group to use microscopic images.

Caution: Discard gloss gel medium in a plastic bag, or outside so it won't dry in your plumbing.
