What's on your workdesk? Wednesday #7

#WOYWW #stayfocused #createdaily

Hola Beautiful People! 

Here is a look at my creative space today.  Working on a 10x10 canvas that I started two weeks ago using the leftover scraps from another project.  

Today I spent most of my time trying to figure out what I want to add to the canvas.  So I searched though my sketch book for some inspiration and decided to scan and print a these two faces. 
I printed the two faces onto tissue paper.  
Printing on tissue paper, in my experience, differs depending on how the paper feeds into the printer.  I taped the tissue paper onto printer paper. I used painters tape, as I know, through much trial and error, that it works best for my printer and doesn't melt or get stuck anywhere inside the printer. It's not fun unjamming paper and tape from the printer.   
fed my paper via the manual feed tray, tissue side down (per printing directions on tray).  This ensures the tissue paper does not get caught on the rollers.   Again, it all depends on your printer, so know your printer before you attempt to print on tissue paper.  


After printing my images, its time to decoupage the image to my background, using matte medium and a palette knife (or you can use a card or the tool of your choosing).  Because the tissue paper is so thin, just a thin coat of medium is needed, you wouldn't want your image to tear.  Then carefully smooth out any bubbles with the palette knife.  




I love how it turned out.  Now all I have to do is paint my girl's face and add a sentiment.  

I will be sharing my progress via social media, so if you like, please follow along via Instagram @csbuster, my facebook artist page, or via twitter @carmen_buster  .  

Thank you very much for visiting my page and hope to see you again soon!


PS.  I linked this post to What's on your work desk? Wednesday and Creative Every Day blogs.
