VIDEO: Using Rice Paper with Stamps - Mixed Media Cards

Happy Friday and Happy 4th! I have a fun new video for you today, combining one of my favorite art journaling tools - this gorgeous printed tissue paper, made in Italy - with stamps like this script stamp for a layered focal image - it's so easy and beautiful.

You'll see how in the video, but what you'll need is:
Put all that together in the few simple steps you'll see in the video and you have some gorgeous mixed media cards. Choose a smaller patterned tissue paper for ATC's!

The process I use lets the script stamp show through the tissue paper, which I love - think of all the backgrounds you could put behind these images, or stencil patterns, etc. Amazing. And the designs on the tissue paper are so highly pigmented and detailed - and the printed images will not bleed when you add all your mediums!

This second dragonfly was the inspiration for the circular elements on my card. 

This one is probably my favorite - I love the blue watercolor spots. 

So here is the video!

What are you doing for the 4th? We will be dodging rain to smoke brisket and make my famous beans!

After I perfected bean making, I mourned for all the cans of ranch style beans I've eaten in my life! Such a big difference. 

Anasazi beans are the best bean, hands down, and this recipe is my favorite! I've added notes since I first published this, and documented a half portion, which is what I always cook now.

I'll also be having watermelon - there are these small local ones that I've eaten to the exclusion of almost everything else for weeks, and for the BLUE portion of the menu, these amazing blueberry/coconut/banana muffins, which are a lot more like cupcakes - they are awesome.

What about you? 

Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a safe and happy 4th!
