Artangel: Mixed media crumpled tissue technique - tutorial - basically, glue tissue paper over a canvas, let dry. Paint, let dry, then rub pastel or chalk over the surface to highlight the texture. Would be an awesome way to vignette around a painting.
Pinner says: Life.Enjoy the Journey began as a canvas covered with 7 Gypsies Tissue and colorized using acrylic paint. Then I added Wendy Vecchi's brick stencil and washed the bricks with an acrylic wash. Love the texture and contrast of color!
