Beginning a new six-week session yesterday, we created distressed paper backgrounds.  Many times, it is so hard to face the "blank canvas" so I decided to give this a try!  Above is a background I created before adding any elements of collage...(ooops with the exception of one little green piece I laid at the bottom left.)

I began collecting bits and pieces of paper that I felt were the colors that I want to incorporate in this piece.  Just a start and I will continue going through my stash.  I haven't decided what I want to "say" in here yet.

I had done a couple of sample backgrounds to show the class before they began creating yesterday.  Here is another one.  This way...

or that way?   hmmmm...what is it telling me?

And then another; a demonstration I did in class.

I can't wait to see what the class is going to do with theirs!
