Sarah gave us a list of 24 things to find in magazines, including a number, a flower, a circle, the letter R and something blue. We then stuck them down in a specific pattern (after preparing the paper with gesso and paint). I tore the edges of the pictures and went round with a brown chalk inkpad. I added a bit of scribbling and thought that was it - but no, Sarah told us to go back to it 2 days later and add paint and some specific patterns.
Well I rather like my brown page so I left that and just followed the instructions for the next page.
I have learnt a great deal about preparing and making backgrounds up to now.
What next I wonder? If you want to see Sarah's instructions, look here.
Thanks for all your supportive comments, by the way - I really appreciate them.
