Pretty Papers

On Tuesday night, I hosted the monthly livestream for Balzer Designs YouTube Channel Members.  We discussed a wide range of topics from quilt binding to time management. I also did a bunch of art demos and thought I'd share the pretty papers that came out of those demos - showing how different mediums react under the same circumstances.  Check them out:

For all of these art experiments, I used plain old copy paper.  I think we often get caught up in thinking that we should use or buy "art papers" but copy paper works great for lots of stuff (and collages well, too!) and it's something you almost always have on hand! 

This is the piece of deli paper I used to clean my brayer and stamps:

I will definitely be filing these papers away for use in future artwork!  One of my favorite things about collage is mixing and matching papers that don't look like much on their own and yet they come together to be so much more!

If you'd like to join our monthly livestreams, you can sign up here for $4.99/month.  I receive $3.49 of that payment and YouTube takes the rest.  If you enjoy the blog content you read every day and would like to support me, this is a wonderful way to do that AND learn something new along the way!

Thanks for stopping by!
