Tissue papers are such a versatile material to do art and craft. Pari and I have experimented with tissue papers in many fun ways.
We’ve used these to:
Be it in dry form or wet – with water or glue – you can explore doing art with tissue paper in some amazing ways.
Last week, I had Pari try a wet tissue technique – by soaking bits and pieces in water, squeezing out the water and sticking them onto art journals with glue. It was inspired by these paper pulp pictures.
Check out how Pari created these beautiful textured tissue paper art and enjoy her colourful pictures..
Also, am announcing the five lucky winners of the Personalized Story Book Giveaway. YAY!
Pari drew hearts and flowers in her art journal and stuck down lumps of soaked and squeezed tissue onto the sketches.
It’s a really open-ended sort of art – all about the process that allows kids to have unbridled fun.
The thrilling part was to dab water colours on them and watch them soak up the colour – creating vibrant tie and dye sort of effect.
You can also use coloured tissue papers to create similar effect. Make sure the tissue don’t bleed or else the colours will run into each other.
The sensory experience of wet, lumpy tissue between hands is a pleasure every kid will love.
A little messy, but it’s so much worth it.
I’m sure we’re going to try this technique over and over again.
Oh even I would love to make a big collage of hearts or something and present it to the hubby! (winks)
