During the Ustream show last night, I did a demo of my paper applique technique. This project used a Tim Holtz District Market burlap panel (See below for how I altered it). We had a blast during class while the bird jokes and play on words “flew” around the chat. Here is the finished panel. The papers used were a variety of Graphic 45 papers.

Here is how I altered the panel before the show.

Cover the panel lightly with white gesso. Next, tone down the white with a coat of Walnut Stain Distress ink. Cover the surface with a mix of Antique Gold and African Bronze Guilder’s Paste.
Sand lightly with a sanding block and add another coat of Walnut Stain (forgot to photograph this step).

Today, we will be trying out the New Livestream. During this Field Trip class we will be making another panel with a Macaw….
