Gloria J Zucaro's "CJS 2017 with Birgit Koopsen"

I missed posting yesterday because I had some dental surgery and then some pain meds and didn't feel like doing much at all!  So today I did the project with Birgit Koopsen, and later did today's assignment. Birgit did a wonderful re-purposing of a very plain wooden stool. Her technique is so simple with wonderful effect. First she made her own deli papers decorated with acrylic paint, stencils and stamps. She also collected some printed materials with text. After ripping the papers into small pieces she applied them to the stool. She also used a complimentary paint color to make a design on top of the collaged papers.  Then she did doodles over the painted areas.
Really beautiful!
With time being short, and nothing to repurpose, I did a page in my journal to use her techniques and try her supplies.

Stage One, making papers

Stage Two, Collage

Stage Three, Adding Paint

Stage Four, Add Doodles

Have a nice day tomorrow.  I would love it if you would leave a comment below.
Thanks so much!
