I had some old patterns and I was going to either throw them out of give them to Goodwill but instead I decided to keep it for collage material. I used matte medium on the pattern paper.
On the next layer I decided to use Elmer's and water 50/50. It turned out to be easier to use and even more effective on these thin papers. The paper I used I made years ago as part of a DMTV program. They were all done on thin semi-transparent paper which were perfect for this spread.
These are a few of the many papers I have been holding on to for years. Finally a chance to use them.
Next was a feather stamp that I hand carved years ago (see tutorial on carving stamps)
I added this grid graphic
and a last bit of paper on the bottom right. The project is dried and done.
