Chigirie Tip of the Week for October 1, 2019, directly ties into the changing landscape.
Add a Personal Touch
I’ve never been one to buy art prints although I own a few prints by famous artists like Andrew Wyeth. My love for original paintings and paper collage is one of the reasons I create my own Chigirie, Japanese Torn Paper Collage Art. Even before I began selling my work online, I amassed an extensive Chigirie collection.
When the time came to sell my work through my shop and at art shows and exhibits, I had two or three seasonal pieces to market. Fall and spring themes remain at the top of my best-selling art list.
Fall scenes are my biggest sellers. Take some time to look for unique landscape images you can transform into Chigirie. Fall colors transform particularly well. Begin with a colorful mix of red, brown, yellow, gold, and orange shades of paper and graduate into full-blown color if you dare!
Celebrate the Season
Depending on where you live in the world, chances are the leaves are turning brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow as the days and nights turn colder and fall sets in. Throughout the United States and perhaps in other countries, pumpkins and gourds are widely used to decorate homes and towns.
As a result, this week in the Chigirie Tip, we focus on ideas for paper collages that represent fall. We incorporate favorite fall decor items that are simple to find.
Snap a photo of your favorite fall display and create a folder of ideas that’ll keep you busy all winter.

Indulge with Color
A single leaf in your choice of color, a pumpkin, or a single apple are projects you can try now. Try to recreate a juicy, vine-ripened tomato with the stem as a reminder of a summer garden. They immediately sold at an art show much to my surprise.

Eager to find out what’s in store? The first washi art project is something you’ll find in the woods and perhaps your yard if you have a lot of trees. Take a guess?
You’ll love the design because it’s one you can use time and time again on a special Japanese paper medium, home decor items, fabric, and notecards.
