I started my project by gluing random book pages to a canvas board:
Next, I added stencils with acrylic paint and rubber stamps using Royal Purple StazOn ink.
Then I glued torn bits of my own patterned paper:
I created my own stencils and cut out circles, leaves and birds from my gelli-printed deli paper and glued it down:
Repeat with more torn paper – this time I used pages from an old Shorthand book; added a little more acrylic paint and rubber stamps:
And it’s complete!
I learned some of these techniques by taking an online class with Lynn Whipple, called “The Joy of Collage.”
