Comments: I like the softness of the Sobo Glue on the finished product and the detail the overlay tissue gives the finished piece. Colors look great together.

Process: Sobo Glue, Tissue Paper, Cigar Band, Yarn Pom - opened and drizzled for texture, overlay tissue paper was tan - not white
Comments: I like the softness of the Sobo Glue, I like they drizzled yarn pom for texture, I like the idea of the overlay - but it really subdued the collaged pieces underneath. Love the cigar band as a impact element.

Process: Elmers Glue, Tissue Paper, Junk Mail Envelopes, Black Thread, Overlay tissue paper - white w black dots
Comments: Overlay paper is over dramatic at this point, love the linear texture added by the black thread. The Elmers Glue is much stiffer than the Sobo

Additional Thoughts and Comments:
This was a wonderfully creative experiment -I am in the study to encourage myself to 'get out of my box' so to speak and this was a good start. I definitely prefer the Sobo over the Elmers - as noted in my comments. I like the random collage aspect of this project and need to experiment further with the tissues I am using as the final overlay. It seems those with subtle texture or color work best - those more dramatic and darker in color seem to dominate the collage work underneath. More to come as the journey continues...
