I finally did something with the large collage sheets made during the PaintPaperPaste workshop.
Well, to begin with- I hated this collage. Nothing looked right. The color was all wrong so I added another layer of paint. Hated it. Added more layers of paper. Still hated it. Tried one more time to add color and it got even worse! I decided to throw the entire thing away (I've finally gotten to where I can do that- after all, it's only paper!) but was so lazy it just sat in the pile at the end of my worktable for days.
Hmm. What ended up happening was that I didn't actually hate them any more. I was maybe even starting to like them... so I went ahead and spritzed them with some Glimmer Mist and they had a little golden sparkle to them. Next I added some hand-dyed seam binding to the top and I liked them a little better. Once I put the tiny butterfly images onto the bottom it really brightened the whole thing up. What do you know? I actually liked them now!
Guess you never know.
these are lovely! thank you much for sharing your process. i too have "ugly paper" issues and the solution of reducing the size is a great idea! :)
I think you fixed that up quite nicely. They are gorgeous tags.
Thanks for the walk through, amazing really
Keep smiling and creating
Thanks for sharing! That was a great idea and sounds like fun too!
Those look good Terri! Aren't you glad you kept them! I have found that many times, hated something and picked it up a few days later and added just that little something....and surprise!
Did you color some of those butterflies with the oil pastels?
Wow! Love 'em!
