Inspired by Cecil Touchon

A few months ago I saw a postcard made by a friend in the style of Cecil Touchon. I liked it very much, but thought it was made by weaving paper strips. Last weekend I searched online to find more info about Cecil Touchon. I found lots of examples of his work and  a YouTube video, which inspired me to a page in my studio journal and an ATC. The quotes are from the Dutch magazine Flow
Waar is de stilte is Dutch for Where’s the silence.
I chopped it up and rearranged the squares into a nice collage.
 This is the quote I used for my ATC.
Again chopping it up and rearranging the squares into a nice collage.
I like this technique a lot, next time I use a quote with more colour.

  1. So you did give it a try! It's fun, isn't it? I tried with different styles & sizes of lettering and I enjoyed seeing how they came out.
