Rolodex Project - Day 9

Day 9 of my Rolodex Project. You can read about this project here.

Today's 3" x 5" artwork was made from a single piece of bleeding tissue paper. The turquoise tissue paper was altered by laying orange and dark blue on top then lightly spritz with water. Once the tissue paper was dried, orange and dark blue stained the turquoise. I've used this technique before in my art. I'm planning on using this technique on a larger project and stitching on top. This piece is sample. The Valdani  Pearl Cotton #93 Bright Turquoise Medium and #204 Bright Orange Coral matched exactly. The thread added a nice texture. Next time I will try contrasting colored thread to add more depth.

Thanks for stopping by!
