Collage- Whimsical


Some things cannot be spoken of,
Only through love can all things be understood,
From the inside out,
Set yourself free from yourself,
Let love cross all barriers.

hi Susan,

Thank you for your lovely comments.
The background is done with layers of paint. What you could do is first paint the canvas/paper with a layer of paint, say blue mixed with white. On another paper, paint some dark blue (draw some patterns on this if you wish), then smoosh both papers together and pull. Continue to smoosh until all paint is transfered. You can add more layers of paint. I like using a layer of titanium white smooshed to blend the background colours together. i hope that helps. If not,email me at sunbear@upnaway.com and i'll reply :o)

love
Sulea
