Paper Art

What comes to mind when you hear "paper art"? Take a look at these beautiful pieces.

In the July/August issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, artist Susan Black paints, sketches, and collages to create wonderful Botanical Collages. 

Inspired by flowers and floral motifs, Black shows readers how to use simple geometric shapes to create colorful flowers. 

Are your fingers itching to sketch?

In I [Heart] Paper, artist Mary Rork-Watson lets found papers be the star of her collages.

Using papers from her many flea market and vintage shop adventures,  she invites readers to layer to their hearts delight.

Rork-Watson creates strong visual interest using papers with images, topography, text, and more.

Are you thinking about your paper stash differently now?

Artist Annie Simcoe created this Paper House Collage for I [Heart] Paper, but not only did she make this wonderful piece, she also made the paper!

In "Growing & Quilting Paper," you can read about Annie's gardens and how she uses flowers, grasses, and more in her paper making.

Are you inspired to try your hand at making some of your own papers?

So, are any of these pieces what came to mind when you read "Paper Art"?  Maybe . . .

The ways to use paper are as numerous as the kinds of papers that are available. Put on your thinking cap and I bet you'll come up with some creative paper Art, too.
