Painting on Photos
In an effort to get over my block, I've tried something new. This technique isn't new for some, but it is for me. It involves printing a photo on tissue paper and then gluing it down with mat medium. You need to give it a light spray of fixative it you are using an inkjet printer so that it won't run when you paint on top. I quite like the effect and this new technique has given my ideas! What about altering the photo in GIMP. The possibilities are endless!
Here's another little, and I mean little, piece. My A is for Antelope is only 4 by 4 inches. I could do the rest of the alphabet and that would keep me busy for a while!

Laurel, I've recently started printing on tissue paper, too, and I LOVE the way the tissue melts into the background. I've been using old pattern papers as the tissue. Do you tape tissue to regular printing paper and run it thru? That's what I've been doing, but I wonder if there is an easier way.
