Finally, I have broken through and came out smiling as I was inspired from a Somerset Studio piece on
waxed tissue paper article by Rachael Emilie Jackson.
I took two seperate pieces of torn tissue paper and put a coating of beeswax on each of them and peeled them from the teflon non stick sheet. With the wax side up I layered items I wanted in the collage and put the second sheet on top, wax side down (wax to wax) and then ironed them together sandwiching the items in the middle. I put ribbon or string in to hang them with as they are semi-transparent and are made to hang in a window or in front of light.
In the first one I put a picture I tore the edges from. It is definately not transparent but shows up just fine.
In the second one I put mostly transparent or semi-transparent items. The butterfly was stamped on Vellum, the lace at the bottom was sheer, the ribbon was sheer and the only solid pieces were the music and vine. I also used a very pale aqual blue tissue paper. I am now imagining all these different colors to use in the tissue paper, all the different items to imbed in them and am hopefully on a roll and back to creating again.
It's been a long dry spell but I think I am through the wall and on my way again.
Hope you are all looking forward to the cold creative fall days ahead, and Thanks for visiting my blog again.
