Studio Snippet #20: Black and White Collage Papers

This week I'm filling up my Art Parts bin with black and white collage paper!  Yay!

As I mentioned in the video, I'm using High Flow Acrylic Paint on both deli paper and sulphite paper.  And now I have lots and lots of great black and white collage paper to choose from!

Recently, I have found myself reaching for black and white collage paper more and more.  You can see some in each of these pieces from this year:

Because I use soooo many colors, the black and white paper adds texture and pattern in a kind of neutral way.  It also helps me to create strong value differences in my artwork, which I love.

I hope you'll make yourself some black ad white collage paper to play with!

Thanks for stopping by!
