I worked on this further, painting over the blurred writing and redoing it. Changing the colors. I still need to do a few coats of iridescent paint, the color to be determined. The only thing I don't like so much is the fact that it is on paper as the paper curls up with the wetness of the paint.
In my little 4 by 4 inch book I have been painting pages a background color. I guess the paint was too wet as it loosened the glue binding so I'll have to rebind it when I'm finished decorating.
Here is one page complete I think. I painted the background after gluing down the houses, using watercolor pencil.
And here is the second collage on paper in its current phase. This too can use glazes of iridescent paint and something else too, though what I am not sure. It is hard to focus this week what with Thanksgiving looming and also the new house search in gear. The weather has been great so far so fingers crossed that it will continue. Happy Thanksgiving to all, in case I don't post again for awhile.
