Stash Maker: Designer Tissue Paper

· Read in about 1 min · (148 words) ·

I am busy creating my own “designer tissue”. It’s really simple and easy. I am stamping on deli paper!

This is a great project when your time is limited, or your having an artistic down day.

Use Archival ink, and any stamps that you think will look good torn or cut out and applied to your artwork. I generally stick to text and texture and neutral colors. But sometimes I have a plan in mind, and then use specific images and brighter inks. It’s totally up to you and how you feel in the moment.

When you’re done, and the ink has dried, you can tear or cut out pieces and use them any way you like. Glue them to your journals or use matte medium to apply. The paper will mostly disappear into the art, leaving you with the stamped image as texture or a focal point!
