Painting Collage Papers

This week in my mixed media class, we painted sketchbook weight white papers to make a co-ordinated set to do some collage with. As well as patterned papers, we made a collection of solid papers in varying values to use as quiet areas (not shown). I look forward to see what will come of this exercise, but whatever happens, making the papers was FUN.

Sharon, how did you achieve the cool crackle paper?

Hi Paula: The crackle is a commercial product by DecoArt called Weathered Wood Crackling Medium, but you can do the same thing with white glue.
