Painted and collaged paper backgrounds

Painted and collaged paper backgrounds:

Using stencils, painted tracing paper, art bleeding tissue paper, custom writing, acrylic paints, water-soluble pastels, water soluble oil pastels, watercolors, inks, book pages.

This illustration is just a work in progress at the moment, but the background was created the same way, by collaging papers and adding paint.

Colored Papers using tracing paper

Tracing paper is fun to use. It can be stamped, painted, used on gelli plate. It dries really quickly. But the best part is that that you can use the tracing paper colored papers in your collage. After you apply matte gel medium or Collage Pauge, it becomes more transparent, nicely merging into the background.
