|A few leftover papers in a box on my desk called me to leave the scanning and uploading of creative swap postcards for later, and so I did. Being creative was what I needed! I am taking an online course by Mary Green called Collage Coterie and that is where the ideas I came up with for this spread in my sketchbook come from. I started here with a variation on the ripped paper technique Mary showed us . . .|
and painted the background paper with white paint, watered down a bit. Then I brushed a lot of it off with a wet wipe.
Next I added some distress inks in the color of ‘pumice stone’ . . .
|this is vintage paper from a seed catalog, circa 1898 -not a copy|
that is me in the garden, little lenna, circa 1960 . . .
p.s. This is also the 9th spread of pages in my Sketchbook 2011 project : ^ ) .
