Creep in the night

Font size This is the creepy demon that shows up in the night about once a month and sits on my chest and tells me what an incompetent moron I am and suggests that I have little or nothing to live for. He likes to recount every tiny stupid think I have ever done or ever said. He was here last night.

Paste Papers from August 14

Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my friend Jody experimenting with making paste papers. I had made a cornstarch paste following the recipe of Diane Maurer-Mathison from her book, Collage, Assemblage, and Altered Art. I will happily share the recipe if you email me. It is very easy to make - just cornstarch, water and some time.

We added acrylic paints to the cornstarch paste and printed on Canson Mi Teints -- both white and various colors. We used adhesive spreaders to create most of the designs; these are available for 69 cents at Ace Hardware stores; there are two kinds, one with pointy teeth and one with square teeth. They are both great to have.
