Thank you!

I just wanted to take a minute to give a whole lot of thanks to my teacher Yollande who made us see things very differently ( 3-D)...who showed us how to be patient. Thanks for having shared so much of your many talents with all of us. Those 25 years or so with you have enabled us to share- laugh and be creative. My hat is off to you! Again many thanks!

Beautiful works by my classmates

I thought I'd tease you a little bit by seeing other great works done by my "papertole friends"! Enjoy!

Last Update on the Winter Scene

Finally, after all the work was finished,I put on snow just about everywhere: I put on little globs of silicone here and there,immediately adding snow on top before the silicone could dry. The snow had to be put on just a bit at a time (it took about two hours). The snow is made from crushed glass, so one has to be careful. This is the final outcome:the final piece of the art of paper tole!

More Paper Tole

Here, you will find the rocks on the left of the scene with all the many pieces put one on top of the other,giving it more depth.

More June Update

Next came the wagon with the boards...the seat..the wheels..and snow around it. I also made changes to the mailbox..then more snow!!

June Update

I put more work on the fence: uprighted the posts more...the glued wire from post to post(the

wire is actually a strong polyester thread ). I then added snow on each post.

More work....

I then did the ( well rounded) fence posts behind the wagon and started on the pile of rocks in the right bottom corner.

I started making bark on the tree trunks making sure they are well rounded,wherever possible.

May work on Paper Tole

The bottom section was added to give more depth and more branches were put on both trees

Friday, April 30, 2010

The whole bottom section of the picture was cut and glued on a piece of foam core to add more depth to the scene..this will later be glued on the print itself...more work to follow!

Snow banks have started being added here and there...

The big tree by the barn has been added once for now.

To the right was added another full tree,the another,eliminating some branches,to add some depth.

Another roof on the barn was then glued on, followed by the barn boards( that are also inside the barn)

Paper Tole....continuing....

The front of the barn was added; then the barn boards (see window and door of the barn ). These need to be put now because they are really inside the barn.

Barn boards were added to the shed (left of the barn)

The Art of Paper Tole...continuing...

I start with what is the farthest...ex...the mountains.I cut them with tools..then glue with clear silicone.Here , I did the mountains and some of the small trees that are further away.(sometimes I have to improvise and create pieces ).The trees are cut into many small pieces and each is feathered with small scissors and glued one by one,beginning at the bottom working up or vice-versa.
