The background on this started with a page from an old Gregg Shorthand book with strips from other texts glued down around that. I have started using Elmer’s Glue All, thinned down with a little water to glue down collage pieces. So far, it seems to be working just fine. After sketching the face, I glued down strips of painted phone book paper around the edges to frame the face. I tried to use very little paint on the old paper. When I try this again, I plan to use a very thin wash of watercolors.
