I paint papers and embelish them with stamps, and other things. Then I start tearing them as needed and collage them onto a substrate. I then use liquid acrylic paints very transparently so that you can see all the layers building up. When I am satisified with the results I start collaging found objects onto the work. On this piece I used gold leaf and a little clay sculpture I had made. I enjoy doing this type of work as it very freeing and I can let my creative self out to play!
