Pattern and pattern on a page

Samie ( Journalgirl.com) wanted us to get out five scraps of fabric, paper or lace that were patterned and that didn’t match each other.

Collaged them on a gessoed page and began to spray inks and make runs of ink, and stencilled inks.

Next morning when I went to work on the page I noticed a bird shape had magically appeared on the left of the page. I enhanced the shape with Derwent Inktense pencils and the page took on its own life.

The new rooms are looking great

'wallpapered' walls

The loungeroom walls are to be covered in various surface treatments using recycled materials.

This part wall beside the bathroom door shows some cardboard packaging from the shower cubicle attached to the studs.

This wall started out that way, too. I collaged many pictures from magazines, old book pages, maps of where the cabin is, tasty meals, and so much more. The titles of the pages are intriguing and people take time to read them. Fun!
