New Painted Papers

I  haven't  painted  any  papers  lately--something  I  really  enjoy  doing.   It  all  started  with  these  2  pieces--
 
 
 
 
I   was  painting  the  backgrounds  on  these  2  canvases,  and  then  I  collaged  the  fruit  made from   text  pages--and  I  really  liked  the  colors,  but  I  wanted  to  do  more  collage--so  instead  of  looking  for  pre-made  papers--I  decided  to  make  my  own.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 .....these  things  are  addictive--I  love  painting  little  'pictures'  on  them  even  though  I  end  up  cutting  them  into  bits  and  pieces.   They  really  add  to  the  piece  that  you're  making  because  they're  unique  to  your  art  piece--can't  really  say  that  about  scrapbook  papers.
 
So  here's  what  I  did  with  just  part  of  them--
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And  I  still  have  more....
 
Not  only  do  these  add  to  your  art--they're  a  great  way  of  trying  out  new  techniques,  much  in  the  way  you  would  do  with  an  art  journal  page.
 
But  all  of  this  art-making  is  going  to  have  to  be  put  on  hold  for  a  week---I'm  taking a little  vacation--I'm  going to  Disneyworld!!!

I love your painted paper. When I did mine I used spray ink but forgot to dry it between layers so of course I ended up with a very lovely shade of brown! Your's are what I wanted but not what I got. But you are right, it is fun and we learn as we go.

Wow is what I have to say! I found your blog from a pin on pinterest and I love everything you are creating. I can feel power and confidence in your work. I'm hoping to get there too. You've got me thinking of my materials in new ways, so thank you!
