At The Beach






















tissue transfer technique


Using tissue paper and decoupage medium is a simple and easy way to transfer a stamped image to any surface. I've done this with great results on wood and on rocks. All I do is stamp my image with a permanent ink (like StazOn) onto a thin white piece of tissue paper. Then I smooth a thin layer of acrylic medium onto my surface and smooth another thin layer over the tissue. It's easy to gently tear the edges of the image to fit the object while the tissue is still wet with the decoupage medium.







.... these are 2 examples ....






















































I've added a new dangly bit to my peace sign in progress for Mixed Media Monday. Today's theme is "at the beach."
