|I then painted the pattern, using the masking fluid as a 'little wall'. Leave the paint to dry very well before rubbing off the masking fluid carefully. (this is quite satisfying!) If you use a not-so-good quality paper, the paper will rub off too!|
|This is still work in progress. (I Photoshopp'd the pic. above) but will paint another one. I do like the technique. It has a stencil-like quality, but softer.|

|magazine pictures, doilies, tissue, paint - Photoshopped to refine picture detail|
|painted, coloured papers, paint and pen|
|(collage detail) - magazine pictures - photoshopped|
Collage is such a lovely thing to do. Kids love it - and adults too!
If you initially choose a picture, you can use it as your inspiration.
It can be done very simply with just one magazine or newspaper,
some paint (not necessary) and of course PVA.
You can scan it, play with it in Photoshop, then print it off. If you use very good quality inkjet paper, (with your inkjet printer), this makes the world of difference. A good quality paper seems to pick up the colours beautifully. (Hahnemuhle Papers are excellent.)
You could make your own cards too.
