vintage love collage art

Vintage Love
Mixed Media
Alyssa Foy 2011
Here is my newest collage art. I tried a more involved type of collage using a photo of my grandparents when my grampy was in the service. This is done on Gesso board and I usually work on canvas. It was different for me, but I think I'm in love with these boards! This type of photo media was inspired by the works of Sarah Ahearn Bellemare. It really forces you to look at the nooks and crannies of it for it does tell a story. I have found that I like to do more hand drawn painted art on my board, rather than paper cuts, but we'll see where it grows from here... :)


  1. So romantic! I love it!
    OMG OMG OMG! Where on earth did you find that red and white paper with the geometric floral design?
    THAT is what my Nana's wallpaper looked like!!!!!!

  2. I think you did a great job! It looks fabulous! I'm also a "New Englander" born and raised, but now I live in the deep south! (sigh) I found your blog through Vintage Chic.

  3. I love Brookfield Orchards and we could be neighbors..who knows? I just did two post's at the cool is this..Wishing you well from New England, and now following you...hope you dont mind..
