Paper Paintings Workshop Day 1

Paper Paintings Workshop  Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson/// Follow Paper Paintings on Facebook or elizabethsthilairenelson.blogspot.com

Saturday morning 16 happy, enthusiastic artists, all loaded down with years worth of the most interesting papers you have ever seen settled in for two days of learning and sharing. Elizabeth started the workshop with a demonstration of painting and stamping your own papers. We discussed different kinds of papers, how they reacted, where to find them and using common objects to make interesting designs.
After Elizabeth did several sheets we all gave it a try.
