Removing the canvas from the stretcher was oddly satisfying!

Painted the reverse side of that canvas and now just wondering what to do with it! #flyingbytheseatofmypaints

I decided to take this failed painting off the canvas stretcher. I like bits of it so I'll salvage those or maybe... make a bag out of it. Hmmm...

Ha! Couldn't get the acrylic skin off the shiny paper I put it on. So I'll have to put it on a journal page like this! I'll try again on waxed paper or parchment paper. Hmmm.

So much New about IG. Getting used to it again. This is a cool card I got from my wife with a detachable bookmark.

Very little collage here. Just a wacky visual art journal page, later sent to @somepinkflowers because, why not? #sharemore #dontbeshy

Another collage, using a background I painted years ago. It's odd to know how much I love elaborate and even busy collages, yet mine, like my doodles are usually minimalistic. #whatthewhat?

A recent collage, which I never shared. I be gotten a bit better, partly because I follow some of @teeshamoore 's exercises. Working on my own style as well. Curious as to how many of you enjoy collage and use it often?

Had anyone used an acrylic skin in their collage? I've had trouble with collage, and I got this book. It's an update and expansion of an older book which I never read. It's awesome! And now I'm hoping this first foray into making an acrylic skin will peel off in a large piece once it's dried. I'm working on an old canvas I don't like. We'll see! #collage #acrylicskin #fixinganoldcanvas
