I remember when I was a young girl, I tried to make soap. It didn’t exactly turn out but it was so fun to explore the possibilities! 😉
Now I enjoy experimenting with different art materials – even if it doesn’t turn out exactly as planned.
I like painting my own papers for collage yet I wanted to try different materials. For this yellow fellow below, I glued scraps of my Gelli-printed papers to a 9×12 inch sheet of 90 lb hot press paper. I added yellow marker and color pencils. It was very meditative to do while watching TV. I am going to try scanning it and make copies from it.
For “In the Loop,” below – I used Canson 9×12 inch gray toned pastel paper. I drew the loops with a white gel pen and added color and patterns with Prismacolor pencils. I got out an orange crayon and created a resist with a mint green Tombow marker. So fun!
I can’t wait to add these two experiments to my collages!
Happy Experimenting! 🙂
