I was inspired recently by an article in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. I am too lazy to go downstairs and search through the 100's of magazines laying around, so I can't name the artist. How 'bout tomorrow. Ok, that said, I followed the Artist's technique in which she collages and paints her backgrounds. Here is what I came up with using her style. First, I laid out the paper until I liked the layout. Took a digital photo of it in case Buddy Guy or PT jumped up on the table and walked through my carefully designed layout. Who am I kidding, I can't remember shit with this whole menopause thing happening. The photo was strictly for my benefit. Wow, confession is good for the soul. Oh, I digress. So Here is the initial layout:
Then I glued using PPA:
Here is the final composition:
Next step, glued on some rice paper and napkins:
After PPA dried I dry brushed some buff colored cheap acrylic paint all over:
After I seal it with some gel medium, I will cut it for ATC backgrounds. If it was on stretched canvas, I think it would make the beginnings of a very interesting collage! There is always next time!
