Making Collage Papers - and Collage

Thanks for all your thought provoking comments on my last post.  I so much appreciate the discussion.  In the studio I've been trying out new ideas, new ways of working with my materials, and valuing the "busy work" time I spend there.  Here is a video of me making collage papers from my "scrap paper", and then  one way I've been approaching some new 4"x4" pieces.


Here are a few of the papers that came out of this session:

 Have fun making your own collage papers or re-purposing your scraps.  And here are a few of the 4"x4" collages I made using these and other papers:

Well, ho hum, but it's a start.

This is actually my favorite, so I started making more painterly marks on my collage papers.  See how that goes, and maybe I'll post the results.

  10. Would you be able to paint very much on top of the collage papers or would they start wrinkling and giving out?

  12. How did I not know this? I have tons of scrap papers from all the classes I took with you, and am about to purged them. Don't know how I got to this blog (synchronicity) - but this information is certainly very, very helpful for me. Now I know what to do with my scraps, yipee! Thank You for this tutorial! I'm inspired! See you in 2016. :-)

  15. This is great stuff. Seems to me the creation process is endless, from using scraps to creating collage papers that can be part of other collages and even printed to be used in multiple projects. My mind is always in overdrive!
