I occasionally try out new (for me) media: pastels, collage, etc. Some paintings (don’t ask me why) simply call out for a different technique. Rather than cutting up old paintings and creating a stronger collage from them, my latest collages use whatever paper I happen to have around (crepe paper, construction paper, newspaper, magazines, etc. etc.). As I move into acrylic, some of my most experimental and exciting work is acrylic on Yupo (really smooth plastic, not “paper” at all).
