Playing with Paper

Today’s offering is a combination of paper’s ready for the garbage bin. The background is torn paper glued together in no particular order. The woman is cut out from a catalog magazine. Once she was glued to the background, I painted her with several layers white gouache. When the paint was dry, I used Derwent watercolor pencil to redraw the woman and her outfit. All in all, a very fun art project.

Collage Inspirations

I’m inspired by the many artists I follow who use collage as a way of interpreting their creative process. I love to make art with all kinds of fibers and paper, too. Also, the materials are readily available and many ready for the trash bin, :-).

Two versions ( I’m happy with both)

Original

I reversed the color in Photoshop Express for the iPhone.
