October art technique For Altered Art Obsession

Every other month we do a different art technique. We picked something we wanted to try from Lynn Perella's "Artist's Journals & Sketchbooks". This piece is 4 x 6. I chose to try the tissue paper background. I gessoed the paper, let it dry, then added tissue paper with gel medium. When that was dry I painted 3 different colors of paint randomly. I also stamped the leaf design in Staz-on. I added a skirt I made out of a vintage magazine to the lady. Then I added a wire beaded tab to the edge. I love trying new techniques, then I dont get stuck in a rut.

Debbie...the colors on this piece are absolutely gorgeous. And tissue paper is so fun to work with. I love how you did her skirt.
