Rice Paper


Rice Paper

Hallo There!

The year seems to be already
picking up speed.................
Here we are almost at the end
of February   

Beginning to wonder if the 
addition of an extra week 
wouldn't be such a bad thing.......................

Really? Yes of course, I'm joking!

Here's Helen Chilton with some
lovely rice paper:





Choose your designs. I've gone for 
one black and white collage design 
and then some coloured images for my focal point


Stick some of the black and white paper 
to the front of your canvas using a decoupage glue


Rub out any air bubbles with your fingers


 Cut out the focal image roughly and stick to card. 
When dry trim to make a tag.


I've used Gelatos as a colouring medium 
and have taken my colours from the dress form image


Rub and blend them with your fingers.


You can also pull out colour with a wet brush.


Add some extra colour to the dress form tag.


Then use a baby wipe to remove colour and make highlights


Finally rub some white Gelato over the back of a stencil 
and rub into the canvas. 


Finish with a brad, stickles and some ribbon.



Materials used:


Thank you Helen 

Isn't that gorgeous?
Amazing what can be 
achieved with these papers

They're so affordable and
come in so many designs
do give them a go

'Till tomorrow
