Very soothing and satisfying.
Totally loved my handpainted collage paper all over again.
In two past exercises I also started with 5x8". In one I collaged first, drew an ink line second, cut in half last. In the other I drew a fabric paint line first, collaged second, cut in half last. Today I collaged first, cut in half second, drew wax pastel lines last.

I had fun creating the wax pastel lines. I chose 3-5 analogous colors to add depth to each line.

I've got these perched in front of me at my desk where they catch my eye as I go about my business. I can imagine a set of four of these in simple frames, providing cheery pops of color, shape, and line in a child's room, or a bathroom, or a spot in a kitchen or family room.
