Eleanor - Using papers with words or maybe the newspaper by cutting in tearing them and then sticking together to a new art work. Then, with the gaps between papers, it will be much easier to create and get new ideas with following the gaps. So brushing different colours and add some other elements can quickly get another unique art work.
Must try this technique not only stitched and collages but just be cutting a shape out and adding a textured paper to the background.
