Collage Papers

I wanted to show you some of the papers I ended up with from the workshops at the Art & Soul Retreat.  Many of these were made just for experimenting and some were accidental.

This paper was made by scraping different colors of transparent paint on the paper with a gift card. The splatter was made by squirting water on the paint and then blotting it off with a paper towel.

This was a gelli plate print.

Another gelli plate print using a stencil.

The blue is scraped on transparent paint and the black and white came from "lifting" paint off another piece of paper.  This is an "accidental" paper.

These next two black and white papers are completely accidental.  I was just using the first one to "lift" off paint from other painted papers. I really liked how they turned out.  Since all these papers weren't planned and we were working quickly, I think they have a real nice "energy" about them.

I am not sure what I am going to do with these papers.  I could certainly use them for collage, or paint over them or just keep them as examples.

I would frame that last one. Serendipity aside, its energy and movement are fantastic.

Thanks, Sue. I do like the movement in that last one.
