When the collage paper was dry, we tore it into small pieces and adhered it to butcher paper with gel medium. We added tissue paper, book pages and other papers for interest. (I am trying to love the Dylusions Ink Spray, but so far it isn’t happening. I get frustrated when the ink smears into the gel medium, especially if I am using print like from a dictionary.)
After the butcher paper collage was dried, we used it to make covers for these little books.
Using the same technique, I made a bigger Wink journal!
Mixed Media Club meets the third Thursday of the month at EphemeraPaducah, corner of Madison and 9th Street. Located in the Lowertown Art District, the studio has a large space for working and Kristin generously shares her tools, stamps, paint, ephemera, etc. It is a fun way to try tools, products and techiques. Currently we are working our way through Art Journal Freedom by Dina Wakely.
