Shiny Moment - Textured papers


bird collage of handmade textured papers 9" x 12"


Making textured papers for your own collage work or with your children is a lot of fun.
This collage I made has bird wings made from this plastic wrap paintings.One of my classes did this process together and I have the photo tutorial here. It is a really simple method for ages 2 and up. This collage above has more interesting methods of texturing paper and I will continue to share them with you as the summer moves on... slowly however as it is after all ... summer!
Go play with this... have fun!

The word for the day is ... compose ... a song in your heart, an idea for play, and a delicious dessert for dinner.
