How To Make Picture Using Paper Batik Method
I colored it with oil pastels, and outlined with black marker pen. I colored the background. Then applied the paper batik method. This means to crush the paper, uncrush it, and apply a layer of watercolor of your choice on the paper. Place this art paper on a double folded sheet of newspaper or other absorbent paper. Place another double folded newspaper or absorbent paper on top of the wet art paper. Iron this slowly and moving the iron over the stack of papers. Lift the top layer of paper to check on the condition of the art paper. When it appears dry, your ironing is done.
The last step was pasting the main picture onto a bigger card. This allows the effect of a border, which was then painted in a contrasting color, pink.

How To Make Print on Print Collage.
Collage of print on print. I used a slice of cut vegetable to stamp this print on squared paper. On hindsight, I should have drawn the cat before stamping. Anyway, I mistakenly thought I could use the hand made pattern of stamping for the skin texture of the cat. Then I chose the lightest patch of stamping area to draw the cat’s face. The darker prints would make up the body of the cat. I love vegetable stamping. The natural print is beautiful. The green stamping was made by using a piece of kitchen dishwashing fiber wool.
This is a profile portrait of a dog begging for morsels of food. I love the woeful, pleading expression that it uses to con the human. Please toss him a morsel of food!

How To Make Terrapin Prints
This unique print serves well as the shell of tortoise/ turtle/ terrapin. The stamp was made from sliced lotus root. This root has natural tunnels of holes. After stamping to make the shells of the turtles, I drew and used oilpastels to color in heads, tails, and four limbs of the reptiles. Lastly, water color was added to create water for the amphibians.

How To Make Pixelated Dog Art
My version of a pixelated dog. I used the repeating pattern of two shades of pink and 1 light blue. I drew this dog using straight lines to present a rigid look. The background was painted in a monochrome to avoid distracting from the main theme of being a colorful pixelated dog.
Original art 5.8 inch by 4 inch. Watercolor cat plays with a bit of pink wool.
The background is double stamped, because the plastic netting did not retain enough watercolor to make a visible print. I tried to press the plastic down but this act created a smudge. The cat’s head was made by a single splatter of watercolor blob that fell from a straw. Then its body was painted using the same watercolor. I glued on a bit of yarn for the cat to play with.
How To Make Headless Camel Rider
Why the camel origami? Because I could make it after modifying the basic structure which used the crane folding method. I cut a vertical slit in each wing of the former crane, This allowed the formation of 4 legs for the camel. The camel’s hump used the natural ”spine” of the crane. The head of the crane became the camel’s head. The crane’s tail was folded down to make the camel’s tail. Its really hot in the desert, where this camel walks. So the background was painted with warm colors. Each layer was blended down to its subsequent layer.
The rider is composed of two pieces of origami. The basic fold is from making the leaping frog. Both upper body and lower body are made from the same fold structure, and then specializing them to form the upper body and lower body respectively. You can draw a head from a small scrap of paper, cut it and then paste it on this collage.
This is what I mean by drawing a head and pasting it on. This head was created by siphoning a drop of colored ink/ water color, into a straw. Place your index finger over the top of the straw to prevent the ink drop from falling down the straw at the other end. When you’re ready to drop that ink, release your index finger from the top of the straw. Watch how the ink droplet splashes down on your paper. Cut out the shape of this ink blot but allow more space around the blot. This space accommodates for you to draw in hair.
This is a collage of a woman made with origami. Her choice of transport is a kitty, made from cloth. She gallops across a landscape composed of water color.
How To Make Pretty Cats From Fabrics
I bought a bundle of fabric scraps which were cut as quilt squares. The cloths were pretty; woven with some glittery threads. I wanted to maximise the use of each square, so I drew the biggest cat that the square could accommodate. The fabric prints were beautiful and I wanted to capture their glory in art, before they would be used up and forgotten.
Here are more cats from the fabric quilt squares bundles. I arranged the drawing of each cat to take advantage of the square’s print. They become fantasy cats with surreal body patterns.
How To Make Background Print
I used a couple of wood clothes pegs. I painted along the flat surface of a peg and stamped this on the card paper. I added more paint on the peg and stamped it close to the first stamp.

How To Make Your Art Interesting:
You can try to use mixed media. Vary the use of media for different components of your picture.
Mixed media art. Female anthropomorphism character painted in water color. It is then cut out, then glued onto a background painted in acrylic. The background is made by dabbing different acrylic colors of the left column of the card. Apply dabs of acrylic paint in a vertical column, from top to bottom. Use a paint brush to spread these globs of paint, with strokes from left to right, until the end of the card is reached.
Water color female tennis player collage glued on watercolor stamped painted background. The stamping was done by painting wooden clothes pegs and stamping it in a dense pattern, on green card paper. The metal clip component of the clothes peg did not allow paint to stick, hence it made the blank lines. This collage makes the player stand out a bit, and creates an extra dimensional effect.

How to Make Shades of purple
Two women painted in monochrome purple. Various amounts of water is added to the basic purple paint, to make the shades. When we squeeze purple paint out of its tube, it emits as its original. dark purple. So we paint in the parts that require dark purple. Later, we paint the lighter shades of purple, by adding in water.

I strung real beads to make a necklace for this pretty woman. She wears a teal colored glittery strapless top. Although the shiny does not show well in this photo. I’m telling you she wears a shiny top and you’ll have to take my word for it. If you wish to use her necklace as a bracelet, cut along the lines of her shoulders. Bend the card paper a little to slip her necklace off. I had the idea of using real beads to encourage participation. The owner of this art can use the beads as an accessory. The small size of the subject’s necklace means a human can only wear it as a bracelet on the wrist. The string is elastic and accommodates stretching.
