These are some pages from one of my art journals. This is a new approach for me inspired by
Matisse who described his paper cut out process as "drawing with scissors" explaining: "Paper cutouts allow me to draw in color, I see it as a simplification. Instead of drawing the contour and putting color into it--one modifying the other--I draw directly in color."
I used loose watercolors in the background and then cut out past drawings and glued them on. This was wonderfully fun!
