Painted Paper with Painted Glue
Painted Paper Color and Texture
Painted Paper with Glue
After a day of priming and painting newspapers
I get to the day of card making.
How to put the blocks of painted paper together?
Not as easy as I thought.
The picture of how I thought it would be in my head
does not match what the paper will do.
Have to let go of the picture in my head and see
what the painted papers can become on their own.

Dancers In the Night Sky
The paper figures are cut from recycled newspapers.
I used a single figure.
I cut it out of painted newspaper that was painted on both sides.
I used both sides to change the figure some.
Two more versions of the Moon Dancers.

Trout Good Fortune
By lying the cutout shape of the fish over the painted
and printed newspaper
I was able to find some areas that seemed like a trout.
The trout of good fortune and prosperity .
Theactual word in Chinese for fish translates into "abundance."
The trout of abundance.

What is the source of these ?
Upside down thinking and sudden bursts of strategic dreamspeak.
Claiming the crow as automatic messenger.

Using the medium weight cardboard from a discarded box
I cut out the crow shape to use
to print with.
I did use the crow shape and have some prints with it
but these are from the cardboard that was left behind.
I used some primer on it first.
I painted both sides to help it hold up to the painting and printing.
Then I brushed on a combination of black, brown and red paint
and printed onto a painted piece of newspaper for the top
bird and a painted piece of
cardboard on the bottom.
