I used black gesso as the base on all the pieces then simply cut the papers as needed, distressing inking the edges with black soot di. Matt medium was used as the glue and glaze. The first piece has my favourite papers as I only set out to do that one piece - then I wanted to cover everything I had! The biggest piece was last and I decided to use the papers I had left rather than buy more (interesting ones).
Too many pics I know but I hope you like them and thanks for looking.
