Collage and Water Colour

Hello, Ann here again with my handmade paper collage today.  I have a nice stash of handmade papers that I made a few weeks back using the Arnold Grummer Paper Making system.  I just love all the colours I got!..  What a fabulous way to turn trash into treasure.  Literally, I up cycled a bunch of junk mail into some great sheets.




For today's project I used four of the sheets of paper I made to make a mixed-media collage.  I used to love cutting out and playing with paper dolls as a child and it seems that I still enjoy that today, but with a twist.  The twist being that I make my own now.  I hope you give this a try for yourself or maybe for a child (r the child in you).  It is fun.

I used a large rubber cling stamp of a doll that I stamped onto three different colours of papers,
Then with some scissors and Matte Medium I cut and assembled my doll.



I used a fourth sheet as the background which I coloured up with some water colours and ink.
