Gingersnap Creations Challenge

They have a current challenge at Gingersnap Creations blog to use paint in your art.  I have recently started using more paint in my collages. Here are 2 pieces that I put on 6X6 canvases.
I painted the canvases with Titan Buff. Then I used gel medium to glue down a wonderful white Unryu paper with gold threads. For both of them, I used a piece of my painted deli papers that were stamped with flourishes and had pieces of paper already glued to them. Then I embellished them with stamped images of birds. The stamps are from Paperbag Studios and Invoke Arts. I glued the top one directly on the canvas. The bottom one I glued to a piece of bazzili paper and outlined in bronze leaf pen. I added buttons and lace.
They are pretty wall hangings. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
