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.

In Studio Workshop 11/7 and 8

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.
We can work out 2 days that work for you....
If you just want one day we can play with making paper tape and painting papers.
Let me know!! Would love to hear from you :)

The first day we played and made paper tape 

 and painted all kinds of wonderful papers.


On day two we took it all and bound it together and she made a wonderful little journal!!
