While this may not be the newest technique to most of you reading this, it’s a good technique nonetheless.
Texture Technique: Those paper towels and baby wipes you use to clean up Distress Ink, Dylusions, Lindy’s Stamp Gang, etc. are perfect to collage onto a background for added texture and color. It’s also more green than throwing them away!
Tip: If you glue it down and don’t seal it, the paper towel or baby wipe will continue to be absorbent, but if you sandwich it between a layer of gel medium or Mod Podge, it will no longer be porous. Both techniques have their individual benefits and the “best” technique is the one that suits the project you’re working on!
