Collage does not come naturally to me. But fooling around with washi tape makes collage really easy.
Below is a white on black piece I did for fun. This is a rare occasion where I used black paper. I bought a little pad of it recently so I can try it out.
The lines were made by using Uni Signo white pen. However, I am not too happy with it in this application. The lines are a bit too thick for my liking for such a small piece. For larger pieces, the lines are much better in scale. I applied gold gouache for the sun and the rest is washi tape. It’s kind of whimsical and totally improvised.
Using washi tape is a great way to create fast collages because you can just tear it off from the roll and it can be repositioned.
Have you tried washi tape?
Wishing you an official summer weekend!
