Here is the finished Collage #36.
I first placed a large piece of white tissue paper on top of the journal page. Then laid smaller pieces of black and red tissue paper on top. Overlapping a bit. When the water is lightly spritzed on top, the ink will run. You can see where the black ink is bleeding on to the red and white tissue paper.
Wait until the tissue paper is dried before separating the pieces. The stain on the journal page is well defined. The journal page will be the first layer of the collage.
The next step was adding red tissue paper that wasn't distressed. The distressed red tissue paper was too busy for this collage. I love the way the stained journal page is showing through the red tissue paper.
The final step was adding 3 torn pieces of the distress black tissue paper with white dots on top.
I didn't use all the tissue paper that I distressed on this collage. It will be saved for future projects.
I hope you liked this post and inspired to try bleeding tissue paper in your artwork.
