Playful Paper Backgrounds with Diana Trout

Playful Paper Backgrounds with Diana Trout

Create a varied stash of beautiful papers for use in your artwork. Artist and author Diana Trout shares a wealth of artful techniques for creating delightfully designed papers using inks, paste, and paints. First, painted papers are thoroughly explored using watercolors and other water-based media; special effects include resists, masks, and experimental mark-making. Next comes an intriguing examination of techniques for use with inks, including orizomegami (folded and dipped papers) and suminagashi (floating ink paintings). The fun continues with a lesson on creating your own stamps for personalized mark-making. Finally, learn to create colorfully patterned papers using paste, acrylic paints, and texture tools. Expand your visual vocabulary and design tools, and gather inspiration to create stashes of papers for use in journals, collage, book arts, and more.
