Today’s artist at #cjs20 – yes I’ve caught up again – is Gwen Lafleur. I’ve admired her work for a long time, so loved seeing her name pop up. As I expected, I enjoyed it and am really pleased with the paper doll I made. I’ll be using the technique again, that’s for certain.
Today’s artist was Gwen Lafleur her recipe for making layered collage papers. I had a lightbulb moment watching her. I use scrap paper as I paint, to wipe my brushes & brayer etc, but throw it away once it’s got a bit of paint on it. If I kept going I’d end up with the lovely detailed under-papers I admire that other artist’s share. I knew it, but not in a lived way, if you know what I mean. I loved today’s play session; these are just some of the papers I made.
Today Gwen Lafleur inspired us with an assemblage piece. I do flat artwork when I’m art journaling so took the subject matter, a bird, and the general style and worked with that.
