I want to make a fabric and paper book and I thought I must first get in and paint a heap of papers and build up a supply.
I used cartridge paper as the base and I just layered different Acrylic paints to colour the background.
Next I used bubble wrap and also gutter guard (the mesh you put in the roof gutters to keep out the leaves) to give me patterns.
When this was pleasing to the eye I doodled fine lines of paint in flower shapes.
These are just two of papers-one has a blue base and the other has a yellow base.
I must get back to try some other techniques now while I'm on a roll.
