|Reverse Collage Painting|

Out with the old and in with the new ...
With the new year fast approaching, I need to finish a couple projects before I can move on to new ones. The reversable Fall/Halloween table runner needs embellishment and the children's kitchen aprons need finishing, as well.
In a magazine called Cloth, Paper, Scissors, I found a painting technique called "reverse collage painting". You apply decorative paper to canvas, wood or a picture frame, then cover the paper with paint. You then create your image by removing the paint using your finger or a cotton swab. The surface is treated with acrylic medium before paint is applied for easy removal. I'm not a painter but I'm looking forward to trying my hand at this.
