Brick Bangle and Collage

One of the things I love about working with paper is its versatility. Even though it is only a two dimensional surface, patterns can give it the appearance of texture. This is especially true of this paper covered bangle bracelet. A clear resin bangle is covered with brick patterned paper and a hint of recycled book text, then glossed to give it a shiny appearance.

Using this same brick paper, I also made a 5x7 " collage on canvas board. Using similar tones, I incorporated a brown paper bag into the background and a couple of tree trunk images in the foreground. To add real texture, I added a button and ribbon.
