Portugese cabin

In Nita Leland's collage book, I saw a newspaper/watercolor collage that picked my curiosity. It raised the humble newspaper to a higher level; I am always happy to find creative uses for non-artistic materials such as newspaper, caulking, washers, scraps of metal, found papers (I sometimes pick up stuff on the street..shhh, don't tell!). Of course I wanted to give it a try.

I created these 2 collages on mat board using the same scene - an old wood cabin in a field. One was done using various found and hand made papers and the other one, using newspaper. Different look-and-feel...
