My Kind of Collage

Like I said yesterday, I have started to prepare new canvases. And this is, how I usually do it: I glue down all kinds of recycled paper with white PVA glue. After it's dry, I cover it with fluid acrylic mat medium using it as a substitute for clear gesso. If I know, what color I want the first layer to be I add some acrylic paint to it. This is the latest one (sorry for the blurry image: it was late and dark again :) ).
And I have even covered the canvas with two layers of paper. At first, I covered the whole canvas with newspaper and pages from my kids old school workbooks. When that layer was dry, I started to cover it with the medium adding torn pieces of recycled paper I had mono printed with acrylics some time ago and black and burnt umber acrylic paint. Now, it's dry and waiting for the next layers to be added.
