Today I decided I needed more collage papers as I was starting two new paintings. I had some I had previously painted so I got out my trusty brayer and black gesso and stamps and started laying on patterns. The papers are not finished as I will add a little more to them tomorrow to bring them to completion. Then they will be ready to rip apart and start layering up to form new designs on my painting.
These are my collection of stamps. I hand make most of them and use different stamp making techniques, they range from small 2x2 to large 12x12. I also buy some stamps along. I enjoy the whole process of collage from making the stamps, to creating the papers and finally creating the paintings.
