"In reality, killing time
Is only the name for another of the multifarious ways
By which Time kills us."

The Rats Are Winning by Nita Leland
Magazine Collage

Collages rarely turn out the way you expect them to. This started out as an image of elegance, with a beautiful fashion model and several very expensive timepieces. Somehow it got twisted, as she acquired pocketwatches for eyes and a rat crawled over one of the watches. This is the most popular collage technique, cutting or tearing papers and adhering them with Golden Soft Gel. I always flatten the pieces using a soft rubber brayer. The tricky part is designing the layout.
