Have you worked with fun, bright, colorful cocktail napkins or tissue paper before? I’d love to hear if you’re a fan or not.
I glued down the cocktail napkins and brown tissue paper using Golden’s gel medium and a cut-up credit card because it helps eliminate bubbles. It’s quite frustrating to start painting over top and the napkin rips. Then I hit it with a heat gun to dry it thoroughly and faster.
I painted the center of the page an apple green and did a little doodling and a little drawing. I rarely do faces but this journal page was asking for it. My faces often have the one serene closed eye and the one opened, excited flower eye.
Next I added the Tumbling Pods stencil with a thick acrylic paint and mini spatula. You don’t have to use a heavy body but don’t try with craft paint. It will be too liquidy. Well, I think it would be too liquidy.
