How to create a painting through “collage”

I wish I had some garage sale treasures to show you this morning, but last Tuesday morning I woke up with a very sore throat. After two days of that, I started sneezing for the next three. After that, it was and is a cough.

I am a very impatient patient.

I didn’t leave the house. I didn’t feel well enough to do anything but I did decide to check out some of my pictures.  I found lots of projects I’ve never posted. Here’s one of them.

This first is a painting I created a couple of years ago.It was fun because it was a collage. I designed the paper years ago by dropping and smearing paint on typing paper. I still have a large stash for future projects. The paint is ordinary acrylic paint, the kind you use for crafts projects. I mixed glitter in with some of the paint for the sand.

The sparkle in the sand is craft paint with glitter added. The ocean and waves are done in the same acrylic paint.

These next two pictures show me experimenting with some of the torn papers. The dark paper is going to be used for the mountains. You can see the beginning of the sun here in the top right-hand corner. Some of the paper I cut with scissors, others I tore.

You can see the mountains are finished. Depending which way you tear paper determines whether or not any of the “deckling” (the underside white paper) shows up or not. In the case of some of the mountains, I wanted the paper to show so it would represent snow on the mountains.

Brushes aren’t the only tools for painting as you can see. Hands and fingers are great “brushes”. Original painting

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little art “lesson”. Many of the paintings in my home are originals. Now that I have more time, I’d like to get back to my art.

God bless and have a good day.
