"In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" was chosen as the title because it reminded me of Iron Butterfly, and I grew up in the 70's. This collage began with a watercolor underpainting. I covered nearly all of the surface with magazine cuttings. I use tracing paper to get the exact cuts that I need. My collages are usually a labor of love and take me quite awhile to complete. I love creating collages. Every little scrap of paper I have is like a treasure to me as I see it's future potential in another piece.
