Deli Paper Boulders

October’s theme for the Documented Life Project is use of translucent papers.  The prompts for this first week were to use deli paper and the phrase “You had me at hello”.  The phrase did not speak to me at all so I decided to just focus on using deli paper.  I have some very limited experience of using deli paper in art projects so I was glad of the opportunity to create a page focused on this material.

Since I had just returned from a trip to the Boulder Field at Hickory Run State Park, I took my inspiration from the rounded shapes of the boulders and decided to create an abstract page focused on shape.  I painted up some sheets of deli paper in autumnal colours, given the turning of the leaves that is happening all around me, and one sheet in black in order to provide some contrast.  Once I had cut out my shapes, it was just a case of layering them with overlap so as to make the most of the translucency of the paper.  It is a really simple art journal page but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
