I love to do collage cards. I find it very relaxing. I try to use my own paintings and paper for most of the work. I have all sorts of painting scraps and I also make my own design (above) I took an excercise from Mary Todd Beam's "Celebrate Your Creative Self" I just scribbled crayola crayons and kitchen wax on a large paper, covered it with black gesso and then scraped off portions and added gold or copper paint. Originally I tried to make paintings out of them, but ended up using the paper mainly for collage.
