It is easy to keep using materials that you are familiar with and not stretch yourself, so to speak!
So, as an experiment, I thought I would use some hand-made paper that I have had for a while; as a basis for a new piece. I was looking forward to using some materials that were completely new to me.
I started by colouring the paper with inks and paint, I used a good old fashioned mouth diffuser(which was lurking amongst my inks), and then flicked the paints; some of which were quite thick.
Finally, I waxed and some of the beads and added bugle beads in a free form to accentuate the fringing.
Will post when finished!
