Damask Tissue Canvas for Paper Artsy Fragile Papers Challenge
This is another project I made when I was playing with the Paper Artsy printed tissue when it first came out, which I am entering into the Fragile Papers challenge. I covered one of their 8 x 8 inch block canvases with a piece of the Damask tissue and lightly gessoed it, and then stencilled the flowers with Fresco mixed with Grungepaste onto the Script tissue and tore round it, and applied it to the canvas. I stamped the words, 'Flora and Fauna' onto a piece of twill bottom right. The flowers bottom left and top right have been stamped with Frescos onto canvas sheet and frayed at the edges, and I've given them a bit of support and movement with packaging acetate. I finished off with one of the resin flowers you can get from Paper Artsy at shows, rubbed with Treasure Gold in White Fire.
