Strathmore Workshop, week 4

The final week was on collage techniques in watercolor sketching. I've never really enjoyed collage but wanted to do this anyway -- it's good for me to get out of my comfort zone!

I had no idea really where I was going with this when I began. In fact, there is a black & white photo of a stone cross I planned on putting in this and totally forgot until the moment I'm typing this!

book paper, tissue paper, ink, rubber stamps, and watercolor


  1. Your journal pages are great! I love how you got the texture with the tissue paper, I'm going to have to try that!
    Also, I wanted to let you know that I tagged you in a game of blog tag! There is no obligation to play along, I just really love your blog and wanted to share it with others! You can check out the rules on my blog and if you want to play along that would be great!

    Have a great day!

  2. Thank you, Sena! I applied the tissue paper with a matte gel medium, then put some on top of the paper as well.
    Thanks for the tag invite, but I'm going to decline. You have some lovely photos on your blog -- glad I looked!
