How to Create Textures for Recycled Paper Art
On behalf of tvlesson.com my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I’m a professional artist with the watercolorgourmet.com. In this clip on recycled paper art I’m going to show you what kinds of things that are around your house that you can put in to your paper to make different textures and different colors.
So let’s start over here, the first thing I have I got a gift with a bunch of gold shredded paper in it and so I thought wow you know that might be really cool. So I went ahead and I put that into my blender and look what it did to the paper it actually makes shiny little gold speckles in my paper. So anything like confetti or gold shredded items like these are great to put into your paper along with aluminum foil that’s another choice.
The other thing that I like to use is papyri that I get at the store it’s really nice and look at all the wonderful colors. And these pieces when put in with my paper well actually color the paper and add some really wonderful textures to the overall paper that I create. And so whatever color you have here actually translates into the paper that you make. These are lavender seeds and they smell really, really great and they make a wonderful texture also.
So those can be added to your paper. I also use tissue paper like you see here, tissue paper just a little bit will color your paper and this one made yellow, a light blue will make a light blue paper. The more tissue paper you put in, the darker the color. And another thing you can use or any of the leaves in your backyard these leaves here are particularly great because they have such wonderful colors. And they will actually show up in your finished product.
The only thing you need to do is you are going to make sure that you’ve pull off the big hard stem in the back and just put the softer leaves into your blender. Dried leaves also work very well and they make a really nice texture like you see here in this particular piece of paper. On behalf of tvlesson.com this is Sherie Tengbergen and thank you for watching.
