I want to make 13 small collages for the collage exchange next year. For these two I am using Anne Bagby's patchwork paper method I read about in Somerset Magazine. These are the paper scraps I begin with, tearing or cutting them into little squares.
I glued the squares onto large sheets of tissue paper, then painted one sheet yellow. Another sheet I painted purple and blue. Then I tore the larger sheets into strips.
I then arranged the strips on another piece of tissue paper until satisfied. Then glued down the papers with matte medium. This collage depicts the temple of _____? I have more work to do, may temper the colors with more paint, gold paint etc and some beads or doodads.
This collage is a shield and will need more papers to enclose the sides. Title will be something about a housewife as one of the paper scraps from a dictionary has the word housekeeper on it.
Wonderful, though expensive, collage glue.
