This 8×10″ canvas is another fun project I did via the class I took “Art of Wild Abandonment” from Junelle Jacobsen.

I painted the leaves with acrylic paint, onto parchment paper, and then cut them out ~ one by one.

I added some patterned tissue paper, to the ‘vases’ but I  I would have preferred a white tissue instead of the tan… so it goes.  I figured I should just use what I had, but I could have layered it ever-so-slightly with some glazed, transparent white paint, too… just a thought! {now that it’s done}. 

What really fascinates me, and attracts me to this technique, is the dimensional quality you can achieve!  Love that. And I was patient {enough} to even add multiple layers as I couldn’t stop with just one.

Highlighted-doodled, with my Wite-Out Pen, and my Pitt black pen.   That was fun for me!

I’ll tell ya, I’m real tempted to go back in and cover up the tissue paper… but I won’t.  I’m sure I’d ruin something else about it I like!  I loved this technique with the parchment paper… and I’m wondering how I might incorporate this same technique into some fabric and quilting!  Should be easy as pie!  Like the pie in the Farmer’s Market ~ Yum!!

  1. I haven't been here for a while… WOW – that is really eyecatching! (not like your work isn't ever eyecatching… lol). Pretty what you can do with paper & ink.


  2. This looks like a great class. Luv the 3d parchment paper. There always seems to be what if's but if we did redo the what if's I'm not sure we'd ever get done. This is great!
