burned paper pages together by ersi burned paper pages together by ersi
I thought I'd show you how my burned paper pages look together. They are not the same size, the images are misleading here, and the difference of size is intentional. When I get around to making my handmade book, most of the pages will be of different sizes. I want it to have an unconventional, weathered look.

When I work with paper -not paintings- I practically use white on white. Very little colour edges its way into my mixed media and collage pieces. I want something different now. Not an overload of colour but a playful palette. I put the two pages together so you can see what I mean.

Thank you for viewing, commenting and faving :heart:

Thank you! I have all the pages but haven't bound it yet :confused: Something else always seems to come up. Sigh...

Don't worry, I probably shouldn't have asked! :laughing: I have many projects in different stages of being finished.

Thanks! Paper is my favourite art medium, a noble material I think. There is no end to its uses :aww:

This is true, though I've kind of decided to practice digital art for now. You know I had fear of the blank page (for drawing) a number of years ago... and I have conquered it!! While I did take an art class and we did a couple of painting sessions, I have really enjoyed the transition from photo editing to painting online. My goal is to head back to paper, where I am with writing (as well as digital). I have always loved paper too.

After years of fractaling and trying my hand with photomanipulation and digital darkroom techniques, I felt the urge to go back to traditional art. I needed to touch physical materials again, get my hands dirty with paint, enjoy working in the real world. Aside from fractals, it's a relief to sit down at my work table and be surrounded by non-virtual tools and materials. I am all too familiar with the dread of the blank page and actually miss being able to delete and redo or to simply go back a few steps in my virtual 'history' in PS. But, in my case, those tools are just a way of not facing the real creative problems. Making things easier means taking some of their substance away. In my case.

I can recall having a fear of the blank page (indrawing/painting) a number of years ago. And so I began taking photos... then I graduated to online Tools and am eager one day to get back to basics, where I began as a crafter. I must admit that I really enjoy the benefits of digital design. And it's less messy and takes up less (real) space. Your comments are encouraging me, along with others, to get back to basics too.

You'll rediscover the world :giggle: I hope you will go back at some point and, of course, that doesn't mean that you have to leave your digital benefits behind :D
