The New Light of Day

My how things can change in a day. The paper I used turned out to be much thinner than I realized. It’s watercolor paper but a much lesser grade than I normally use. When you are putting a lot of liquid down you want the paper to be able to hold it. These papers leaked through to the table I was working on. Fortunately I keep a plastic cover on the table just for this reason.

So, to remind you from whence it came, here is the 1st layer’s photo from Thursday evening…

I worked on all 3 of these yesterday but only photographed 2 of them.The third one was off on a different table drying… Here are those 2….

Indeed… What a difference a day makes…I actually hate that I’m going to cut them up!! But that is what they were planned for so I’m sure it will be fine.

Have a great weekend!


Collage or Backgrounds, You Decide

Collage or Backgrounds, You Decide

Today, in my Facebook group, Art Journaling Secrets Unleashed! it was FB Live! day… and we created an Extended Page…. and one type of Pocket! I love showing new ideas and tips to people who are interested in Mixing their media types in art. Is that you? Does that describe you? If so, I have some collage papers you can download… yes, free! I created them so you have MY permission to print them to use in collages or mixed media as often as you like… just don’t print to hang or sell please. Here is the link to download them. I’d love it if you shared one of the projects you use it in. You can post pictures on my Facebook Group: Art Journaling Secrets Unleashed OR Ruth Inman Art – both groups are accessible.

Here is a sneak peek at the assortment… Then click the link above. I think you’ll like them.
