Today's Collage

Click on picture to enlarge.

I started this background with the excess paint wiped from my paint scraper after playing with the technique Barb Owens showed on a recent Ustream show (making designer paper with glue swirls and scraped paint). I used Lumiere green and purple, with a little Folk Art Metallic Inca Gold thrown in. I adhered napkin pieces with Gold Matte Medium and a piece torn from an old music sheet. Stamped the word "Sweet" and added some lines. Lastly I wet the page with the matte medium and sprinkled Angelina Hot Fix fibers (which I did not "hot fix"). I tamped those fibers down into the medium, laid wax paper on top and gave it a rub. They are laying on top as a dimensional element, but stuck down with the medium.

Man's Travel Journal

These are just a couple of pages. There is a mixture of patterned paper, plain copy paper, and graph paper. It's intended for a mix of journaling and pictures.
