paint, tissue paper, printed papers...oh my!
Have I mentioned I love patterns?!
Years ago I started buying packs of handmade papers from a company called Shizen because the colors and patterns were so beautiful I just had to have them. At first I used them mostly for crafting and handmade cards, but somewhere along the way
I had the idea to try incorporating them into my paintings. These mixed media collages are the result. If you ever get a chance to buy some of these papers I guarantee you too will be inspired to make something beautiful.
