Tuesday is Recycle, Reuse or Revive

The first thing a paper artist learns is to not glue anything down until you are satisfied with the placement of all of the elements. This is true for any artist that works in mixed media, just as a painter will sketch and re-sketch all of their elements before the actual painting of the scene, a paper artist must pay attention to placement, color and images if they are to create the image as they want it.

Today's tip is simple: Before you proclaim yourself satisfied with one of your creations, move things around. You may find a whole new design you didn't know was there that tells the story in an unexpected or unusual way. You might even find you like the new positioning better.

I had hoped to have an example for you but I'm having a bit of trouble with my Paintshop.
