It GPP Street Time again and this time Michelle has us playing with tissue paper. I have used tissue paper on my pages before but I never painted it with gesso. It really gives the tissue an unique texture. I liked using it that way.
First I covered white tissue with gesso and adhered it to the page with gel medium. Then I added some colored papers and patterned ones. I glued these down and added gesso on them.
This is after I added some paint and then some stamping. I really like how this one turned out. I liked the colors so much that I haven't decided how to use this one yet.
I had spray painted the red on this page previously and added various shades of red tissue paper, both patterned and plain. Then I added violet oxide golden fluid paint to unify all the reds. I stamped stars to coordinate with the starred tissue paper. This image of girls seemed to want to be here. I added some journaling and called it done.
This one was the same process, this time I added random colored and patterned pieces of tissue papers. Then I added gesso and paint and stamping, you know the routine. I dded the image of the girl and I like how she looked. I may alter her a little or ad some journaling later.
This last page was not done with the tissue paper technique. I had sewn striped paper I had made to a page and made a page out of it. These women in the image reminded me of good times and many friends over the years.
