Charity Auction for Breast Cancer Care



The creative theme at Inspiration Avenue this week is Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I've posted my piece for auction on the eBay charity auction pages. If you'd like to own an original Lisa Wright, you can bid for it here!

In a departure from my seeming obsession for painting faces, I've returned to an old love - a spot of collage - also an attempt to shrink the magazine tower that is building down the side of the sofa.

This is a little canvas block painted pink acrylics and smudged with inks, collaged with pinks from magazines, textured with molding paste, rubbed with more inks, dabbed with paint and highlighted with inktense pencil.

I love the technique. I feel I might be using this again!

Measures 12cm x 18cm x 1cm
Auction ends: Wednesday 20 October 22.15 BST
Starting bid: £5

All proceeds go to Breast Cancer Care.

Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested.

  1. Hi Lisa! Your collage is beautiful! I hope the bids go really high. It will make the lucky recipient very happy. Thanks so much for your sweet visit as always! To answer your question: There are so many crackling techniques and mediums out there. The brands Folk Art and Deco Art are great to use. Also, the faux crackle using acrylic paint over Elmers glue is a cheap and favorite. Have fun! :)

  10. How lovely that you joined the charity auction. I must have read this technique and your process a dozen times before I actually got how you made this stunning, stunning piece. I love all the layers and time you put into it. It's something I would like to try, since I have so many magazine images, too. Talk about an inspiration. You may have just inspired me!
