hi from northern ny where it is sunny (after days of cold rain) and 50 degrees headed up to 74, WOOHOO!
i've been playing around with stacks of paper again. no matter what i do the stacks just seem to rearrange themselves, they don't get smaller, eventually they will, right? yesterday i was pulling materials to make some junk journals and sorting through old papers and came across a couple of collages that i did quite some time ago, and of course had forgotten about. so i pulled them out, scanned and adjusted size and contrast. i will be linking them over to artsyville's glue-it tuesday. proof that i sometimes do make more than just backgrounds, hehehe. one of my things is, what to do with them when they are done. what do you do with yours? do you bind them, frame them use them in journals (these are loose pages), or do as i do and just have them stacked up somewhere? i have pages from 4x6 or smaller up to at least 9x12 or more. let me know what you do and give me some ideas.
i used spray inks, gesso, acrylic paints, rubons, tape, stickers, wrapping paper and probably more. they were each done on a 9x12 sheet of watercolor paper.
tuesdays are one of my days off so today i plan to work some more on journals and maybe get the gelli plate out. that thing is soooooo addictive (hello, my name is mary and i am addicted to gelli printing) LOL. but i have a couple of new tools so i have to try them out, right? right. so i'm off to play for a while.
have a good day, mary
