Here is my ''Transparency' project.
Have you ever tried to stamp onto a canvas?
Well I have.... it didn't work to well.... 
so I'll show you a nice little cheat.
Stamp onto white tissue paper.....
 Use watered down PVA glue..... 
 .... and stick your stamped tissue paper on your canvas...
 the tissue paper goes totally transparent and you keep the lovely texture of the canvas.
Allow to dry  then colour with whatever you fancy...... 
 I used pencils and pastels.
Thanks for visiting..... hope you'll be totally inspired by everything you see during this hop.

  2. Thanks so much for the tut! I love to work on canvases when I can afford them but as you said stamping was out. That's when my love of cereal boxes emerged (no pun intended:)! These skulls are great!
