In previous posts I've shown you my printing play on packing tape, paper tapes, and deli paper. Thought I would show you a few other paper surfaces I've had fun printing on
Vellum or tracing paper - this is what I used
You can see through it - here's the same print laid on top of sheet music
and it produces a lovely effect when wrapped around a candle in a jar.
Print on acetate for even more see-through effect
Above photographed on carpet, and below photographed on sheet music
Tissue paper produces delicate effects
Print over cardstock that has a collaged base for more going on in the background
Use metallic and iridescent or interference paints over black card
Print on old book pages - I love to see text in the background
or as an element to show through a mask
Make tags and journal cards
Decorate library cards and pockets
And of course print to make co-ordinating cards and envelopes
- there'll be more on this as I do my Christmas cards.
Hope you've seen something there to get your creative ideas going. Have a happy weekend :-)
