This piece was created using a re-purposed window, blue acrylic paint (painted on the back of the window and a little red and yellow on the front flowers), various shades of green, yellow, gold, and purple tissue paper, glued with MOD PODGE Gloss glue.
Love using tissue paper...it is so light, comes in a variety of colors, and it holds together nicely when glue is being applied. I tear strips of tissue paper...and layer it for texture and shading...in the same way I would combine paint colors on a canvas.
I love finding old windows! Those who know me...also know that I love them...and collect them for me when they find them. Love it!!!
