“Hummingbird” by Althea Sassman

Item no:

By skillfully applying tiny pieces of torn paper in intricate layers and shapes, Althea Sassman captures the “magic of flight” with this ruby throated hummingbird collage, showing off its dimensional wings and amazing detail.

Her background paper choices are the perfect accents to the main subject, including some papers with floral inclusions as well as our textured spiral whimzy paper which she whimsically used as  “flowers” and creatively tinted them with pastel water colors, keeping their transparent quality in tact.
