I love Pinterest and always go there for some artsy inspiration. Last weekend, I discovered some art technique videos by Jane Davies. I went to her blog and proceeded to read about her techniques and watched most every one of her videos. I was inspired! So thankful for artists who share their processes! I wish I could take some on-line classes but my internet is just too slow. It’s hit or miss when it runs fast enough that I can watch a video all the way through without it stopping to load. So glad it cooperated over the weekend!
I grabbed my deli wrap paper and started slapping on the paint to use as colorful collage pieces. Once the papers dried, I started tearing off pieces and randomly collaging them onto a piece of mixed media paper along with other emphemera I had on hand. Then came the stamping and painting. After I was satisfied with the way it looked, I cut out 2 5×5 inch pieces and adhered them to a cradled wood panel.
Here are the 2 pieces on my hall table. I debated on painting the sides black and but am glad I didn’t. I like the look of the raw wood in contrast to the color of the collage.
I decided to create a bigger piece directly onto a wood panel that was coated in gesso. Here are a few pics of the progress. I haven’t completed it yet but will share when I do.
