Cut outs

I like to recycle paper from either magazines, newspapers or even old drawings and use it for collages. When a wet medium is used to glue cut outs, testing is necessary as some papers may be too thin or too thick.

Washi papers

I fell in love with washi papers because their texture, transparency and thickness vary and, in some of them, the fibers are visible.

In this instance, I’ve digitally manipulated a portion of the image on the left to obtain something completely different on the right.
