Seaview member Patty Leinweber led us in a fun exploration of glue and colored paper.  We peeled apart the layers of dyed or painted paper towels, tore them into shapes and glued them  (using thinned white glue) to a backing sheet of paper, either black or white.  Tissue paper works well, also.

Finished pieces can be used in card making or other paper crafts.

Another fun idea  for this technique is to glue paper towel or tissue paper to the edges of cardstock to make gift tags.

Or just apply the glue and paper pieces to slick plastic sheeting, like visqueen.  Once it’s dry, peel it off the plastic for a translucent material you can use in various ways.
