This is a different horse I made, couldn’t find a photo of the all purple background that I made For Michelle for her birthday, she loved it anyways.. This is the third one I made each is always a bit different as I can never find the same books to repeat images.some of the reigns are made of velvet papers, black… really eye catching. buckles are from photos of lady’s purses. Its really fun love this… THANKS to all my friends for giving me their magazines to use in my art……

Torn papers and some I had to Cut really thin lines, used card stock , Mulberry papers, scrap book papers Velvet papers from Cricut. And some tissue papers for back grounds. White paper is eye glass cleaner paper cut in squares to make apples shine……

A bit of the 50’s

She only took me 2 days , it’s hard to believe I must be getting better at this craft ,or I am skipping details. anyways I love her, ………………so shes done… I love tearing the paper’s and seeing things appear , at first they look kind of undone and not right . But the good thing about this  art is if you don’t like the results you can always tear up more paper and cover up the mistakes….. oh wait there are no mistakes only happy findings………

Mr.Owl this took so long to make some of the pieces of paper were so small that I couldn’t tear them that tiny,  So I used the scissors kind of a cheat but hey its mix media art anything goes right…..

Mr. Duck torn paper art.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was inspired by my nephew TEDDY… He used to carry a stuffed Mr. Duck every where he went.. Hard to believe , He is all grown up now……  I am enjoying tearing papers and fitting them like puzzle pieces. its a slow long process . The best part of this is if you don’t like something you can always glue an other piece over the one you didn’t like…. added some mulberry paper to fluff him up some…..

Dalmatian puppy …Torn paper by Rose Guerin….. loved doing this guy such fun …took forever but I finally finished him… If you look close the words are all information about Dalmatians I thought it would be a kick to print it out and then tear the papers to fit.. Its like doing puzzles once you get the hang of it, pieces seem to just fit into place. ok now gotta go pick up all the torn pieces of paper that flew around ………

paper embroidery feather

Using heavy water color paper. draw your feather of glue a photo of feather to paper to follow your color patterns. I use an Aul, to pre poke the holes make sure you have plenty of space between holes so you don’t tear new holes or over side an hole. its pretty easy you can do backstitching works good or reusing a stiched hole already in place.  then added beads ..fun and pretty. also made a green book mark. working on more of these everyone seems to want these…
