Well - another experiment today - I collaged another old painting with white tissue paper today and then did a series of decorative line patterns on top of the collage with white acrylic ink and a nib pen. There were some lessons learned in this project - first of all the white tissue paper doesn't collage well over a dark background - it just looks sort of faded out - secondly the white ink didn't cover too well on the acrylic medium! Well - life is full of lessons - we won't learn if we don't experiment. All in all, I sort of like the Zentangle like designs on this painting - it gives it sort of an Egyptian-like appeal. But - I probably won't repeat this project, either!
