Recently I have been playing around with old collagraph prints that I am not completely happy with, seeing if I can give them new life in another work.
Previously I have cut prints into strips and glued them onto paper to form a background over which I have collaged monotypes of seaweed etc.
This time I am interweaving two prints together and then collaging another image or motif on top. In the examples above I have collaged dots of paper of varying sizes on one and dots of a black and white collagraph on the other.
The actual weaving process is very relaxing.
I now have quite a few backgrounds to play around with using a variety of techniques and images to collage over the top.
