Artangel: Mixed media crumpled tissue technique - tutorial - basically, glue tissue paper over a canvas, let dry. Paint, let dry, then rub pastel or chalk over the surface to highlight the texture. Would be an awesome way to vignette around a painting.
NTS: Use cut up CD's for mosaic projects.// Cut up an old CD and glue to clear ornament. The lights of the tree reflect off the surfaces beautifully. I knew I would find some use for all those old CDs!
DIY Mosaic with shells. Love this idea for the garden. Would make use of all those frame with shells for a beach picture! shells and sea glass the kids like to collect. Could sink them into a small table top and cover with glass?
