Anyway, the long promised paper tutorial. I decided to just do a highlight page first.I often do these and let them sit when I am brain addled on other work. They are pretty easy~~some are a bit more involved. The nice thing is if you have a day or two to mess with this, you can have some good papers for collage, ATC's, mixed media, etc. I even suppose you could scan some if you do digital work. Since I am still a ninny in that respect, I'm not sure!
Well, so Blogger is NOT playing nice. I didn't want the photos stacked, but hey...it's only MY BLOG...why should *I* be able to make decisions! grrrr....
Anyway, the tute will cover three types of paper; a printed scrapbook paper (or really any paper with a patterned background), a text background from vintage paper, and finally, my favorite~~using stamps and ink to make papers from left over tissue sheets.
I save all the tissue paper I get in boxes, on packages, etc---if you have sent me something of late, your paper may be here awaiting a make-over! (Jan, the piece above was from something you sent me as I found your address label on it...)
So stay tuned.....I'll be back with details.
In the meantime, here is what I gathered:
Liquitex Clear Gesso (a must)
Old book pages
Assorted colors/prints of tissue papers
Staz-On Ink--two colors (I prefer brown and black simply because they work with everything)
Golden Fluid Acrylics (you might be able to use craft acrylics as long as they are transparent, don't know)
Brushes (for gesso and for slathering on washes of paint)
A large palette
Something to smooth out gesso, such as a piece of plastic, etc (don't use your brayer)
Okay, I'll start writing, thinking and trying to insert photos~~and hopefully by the end of the week everything will be up.
If it's not, blame Blogger! ;-D
