I love the little porch on the back of our house.
It is a 3 season, but I have an electric heater that warms it up in the winter.
The cats love it, too, as it catches the afternoon sun for their lounging pleasure!
There is an old butcher block table there that I never have to worry about messing up.
Today I set to work with some napkins, tissue paper and methyl cellulose wallpaper paste
and did some collaging. I started with a piece of freezer paper, shiny side up.
I ripped and cut the napkins and tissue, along with some scraps I had of
handmade papers, layering them with the paste. The methyl cellulose
was suggested by my collage class instructor, the great Amy Ropple.
I had some left over from our last class, so it was synchronicity!
And done! For now!
I carefully peeled it from the freezer paper when it was dry
and taped it onto the porch window for this picture,
You could also use Mod Podge for this, but the methyl cellulose
is less sticky and dries with a matte finish. I used a flat brush to spread it.
Later, I did a second collage, in a different color scheme.
I was inspired by this video by Suzi Dennis.
Hope you're having a very good weekend!
