Agave Paper Collage

Greetings….Today’s offering is a paper collage. I used the beautiful papers, Jill Kuhn designed for me, here is the post about our designed papers. My sewing machine was used to to outline the Agave and add texture to the background. These days the sewing machine is used for art purposes and an occasionally clothing repair only. Have a creative day!

Handmade Collage Paper Collaboration

Recently, Jill Kuhn at https://artjillkuhn.wordpress.com and I decided to create some collage papers to share with each other. We each made a variety of designs and exchanged them by mail.

I have always admired Jill’s use of paper collage in the wonderful art work she produces. I’m so inspired by her sense of humor, creative process and the techniques she shares with all of us. Thanks Jill, for joining me with this fun and inspirational project.

On Wednesday, Jill always post a comical bird using collage techniques. We decided to share our new papers and we would both design our own “Wacky Bird”.

It’s Dance Night in the City…

These are the paper designs from Jill

Book Making

I love making art books and filling them with art. This little book was made with 3 separate sections of mixed-media paper and sewn to a stiff watercolor paper cover. I’ll be adding small watercolor paintings of California Wildflowers.
