We created a variety of papers in a colorway we had chosen prior to arriving...play time with paint, paper and stuff, ah heaven. It was surprising how many different things we had all brought along as "found" paper, fabric scraps or just stuff. One student came back from lunch on Saturday with a few pieces she had found between the classroom and the cafeteria. (and daughter dear complains that I pick up everything along a walk) I was in good company in this class.
Here is a sampling of the papers I created to work from;
After a couple hours of prepping papers, we started playing around with them; this is actually a piece of Kraftex. I decided I really like using this as my base for collage....love, love, love it. It held up so well to the paint, (I could have used more water to get a better watercolor wash, but it was my first time working with it.) stamping, dragging a fork with paint on the tines across it...and of course stitching. These first couple of photos show me just fiddling around. The blue piece is also on Kraftex and I feel is a great landscape.
Here's a couple of photos of my wall;
