Tissue Layering

Been having a great time lately doing what I call "Tissue Layering" I've found it to be a terrific way to preserve brittle pages out of old books among other things. 
Now I know all you Mixed Media Artists have collected a lot of stamps and I don't mean stamp stamps, I mean Postage stamps! I have...tons of them, but only would use one here and there.
SO......I thought.....hmmmm.....tissue layering!!

If you want to know more about what I am doing here check out my You Tube video on this process.
Also....I will be teaching this process in my "Painting Papers for Whatever" class at Art & Soul Retreat Workshops in Portland, Or. in April of 2014.

What a GREAT time my student Alice and I had in the Studio for 2 days!! Wish I could hold more people but to do it right, 1 or 2 is it at a time.


If you are interested in a 2 day "In studio" workshop doing what we did click here.
