More collages from last autumn - this time from an A5 sketchbook: the first two use ink drawings of beetles from the Leeds City Museums collection. Top - cut-out beetle on paper rubbed with soft pastel, plus paper coated with oil pastel, then indian ink, scratched and rubbed back; bottom one uses paper printed with iridescent paint, bought textured paper and paper monoprinted with lacy pattern from an almost exhausted marbling tray.
Above - wet-on-wet watercolour paper, wet-on-dry paper, plus monoprinted paper.
Two more using marbled papers. Above - three different cut marbled papers, plus coloured pencil lines. Below: oil-marbled paper with added pale water-colour and wet watercolour pencil lines plus translucent blue tracing-paper overlay.
Two using photoshopped photograph prints plus cut watercoloured paper and (in the bottom one) torn sugar-paper.
Top: monoprinted and marbled papers. Bottom: scrunch-dyed tissue paper, bits of linoprint sampler, and watercolour "bullseye".
Many thanks for the comments on the earlier ones, and - yes - they are feeding into my quilting. Plus being fun, and a good way of exploring composition. All done very quickly as a sort of creative "starter" for the day.
