Some time ago I signed up for a Collaborative swap on the Yahoo group ArtyOz. Our brief was to make pages in the style of Seth Apter, that will be bound into one of Tim Holtz's new book covers. As we had 13 players I had to make 13 pages.... all are mostly the same.. being that they were never going to be identical due to the proces lol.
I started with watercolour paper and gesso'd both sides... then painted them with a mix of blue and green.
When dry, I painted some Anaglypta wallpaper I have here with gesso and lightly pressed it onto my pages (thats the streaky white markings). I then made the criss/cross lines in paynes grey with the side of a peice of box board (also called chipboard by scrappers but its not wood). Added some coffee cup circles in gesso
Had a lot of fun making them... as Finnebair said in a recent class... 'turn your brain off and your hands on'.
