I feel good tonight! I sorted through my stash of paper bits yesterday, and today, I finally used up all the small scraps - I completed phase one of seven background papers.
(All of these bits of paper and fabric scraps (cotton batiks) are adhered to the background of watercolor paper with PPA - it's just the best product, imho, for collage of any paper or fabric that is not too thick or textured.)
Which means if I want to do more collage, I will need to create more art with my larger sheets of paper so that I will have more scraps to use for smaller projects-or more of these! Plus, I need to get more PPA.
