Rainy Sunday Continued

1.) Take sheer nylon fabric and stretch it over an open wooden frame.
2.) Apply matte gel medium to both the front and back, allow to dry.
3.) Apply torn pages from discarded books or other sources with matte gel medium.
4.) Apply torn tissue paper with matte gel medium, allow to dry.
5.) Layer on the paints! Use rubbing alcohol to blend paints or to pull back in other areas. Use tissue paper, plastic wrap or other materials to do this.
6.) Let dry completely.
You now have fabric paper that is ready for stitching and cutting - whatever you are inspired to do!

cool technique Denise and much different than the other paper fabric techniques I've seen. I may have to try this one :)

I am definitely going to try it Denise. I can see where some real depth with the layering can be achieved. Have you also tried applying paint before advancing to another layer?

It was great to see you and all of your gorgeous works on display at the Pine Bush Art Tour. Guess you'll have to host an Arty Tea Party workshop to demonstrate...hint, hint! Look forward to seeing you soon, and I am working on your little birdie!

Thanks for the little toot. This piece is lovely, as are all your layered works.
