You will need: thin paper, distress inks, water, stamps.
with ordinary thin paper – this one is used for snack packaging. I found it by
accident when I was looking for tissue paper and - not being able to get it anywhere (would you believe it? tissue paper?) - I had
to look for alternatives. This one is not as thin as tissue paper, so it
doesn't tear (much) when I spray it with water. So it is actually much better...
I use distress inks directly from the pad - not caring about blending
it, because I spray it with water.
When dry, you can stamp your paper with whatever stamps you like. I use StazOn ink because it won't bleed.
Or - if you dare - you can run it through your inkjet printer.
printer manufacturer advises you not to use crumpled paper. So, do this at your
own risk. If your printer breaks, you don't know me, never heard of me.]
the thin paper down on a regular printer paper with repositionable glue paying extra
attention to the edge that goes into the printer first. Approx. one in every five
prints jams the printer, so I don't do this very often… [and BTW – don't try
it on laser printers!!]
I use the paper as background in my journal or on my cards - even on my canvases.
Or I make my own Washi tapes.
You will need double-sided tape.
your double-sided tape to the back of the paper.
along the edges of the tape.
Once you start, it's very hard to stop... The possibilities are endless.
