Shades of Green Collage Doodles

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying the week. Not long now for the weekend.

When I have had some free time this week I have been splashing paint about and doing a bit of doodling on collaged paper. Nothing riveting but I do find it quite mindful.

I used thick watercolour paper for these. For no reason other than it was what was at hand. With a bit of gesso and some scraps of paper I created a collagesque base. I liked painting on it. I thought I would use these as little covers for some scrappy day journals.

Oh, Just to share. I ran out of relief paste. Well, to be accurate mine had dried up so I made some out of talc, glue and gesso. There are lots of recipies around. I have tried different recipes but for me, 1tb spoon of Gesso, 1tb spoon PVA, and 2tb spoons of talc. A little water. Now, the first batch I made I added too much water. For me, I found that after I have mixed all of the ingredients together, I just add the water with a mister spray and that works better. Only a couple of squirts until it is the right consistency. Its all a bit hit and miss and you might want to add a little more talc etc or some sand for more texture. I love it. It works great with stencils. For messing about and experimenting it is definitely worth making.

That’s all from me. I am off to sort out my stamps and maybe make something for a challenge. Need a cuppa first though!! 🙂

Take care,

Hugs Flo x
