It’s A Wrap!

It was relaxing to play in my art journal yesterday.  I started with a grid.  Added a little color with a stencil and leftover gouache paints.  Next, I glued scraps of my Gelli-printed deli paper and lastly, I added acrylics with stencils and some handmade stamps!

I think it would make great wrapping paper for a gift, don’t you?!


Happy Monday!  🙂

    • It was done in my art journal but it gives me ideas for future projects. Happy you like it, Claudia! 😃 Have you done collages on a grid before?


      • Yes, in different ways. I am drawn to making things square up (the only exception being how much I also like circles). I like order and things fitting, and so grids satisfy that, I think. Plus, I also like the juxtapositions that can occur by accident in collage and the contrast with the order of a grid. In painting, I also love painting checkerboards and I find them in lots of my work (usually a floor, wall, etc) but sometimes I have filled in trees and so on with the grid.

      • Yes, I do like circles too but as you explained the juxtaposition is a wonderful surprise in collage that I so enjoy! Creating in a grid format also reminds me of a puzzle and I love puzzles! Thank you for taking the time to reply! 😍🎨👍
