You know me!
If, for whatever reason, I am finding it difficult to be creative there is always the Internet - and I've found these to share with you.
First up is a wonderful technique for laminating paper and then using the papers. Ellen Golla is an American artist who has always worked with paper ( by that I mean collage etc.) and is now into handmade books etc.
This post illustrates the possibilities of sticking papers together with things trapped in between as a foundation for other art.
Now I do lots of sticking paper down onto other things, but don't call it lamination. It's just what I do. But perhaps I should. Anyway, this shows there are lots more ideas to explore.
Next up is a painting tutorial. This is not too full on and gives a good insight into how the artist built up his picture. I though it might make a useful reference.
And finally back to the possibilities with paper, paint and pva.
Have a look at the stunning creation, the Tansu Gothic on Randi Pankhursts site.
So many possibibilities, so little time!
