I gessoed first. Not necessary, but I prefer to work on a gessoed page if I am not drawing. Then a random painting on of watercolours. You wait until that dries, then a layer of off-white acrylic paint. Before the acrylic completely dries, take masking tape and stick it on in various places and pull it off again.
At this point, I was disappointed with what I wasn't getting. The watercolour wasn't seeping through the acrylic as I had hoped, and the masking tape wasn't really ripping anything off.
Did I mention that I was doing this in front of my class?!
Maybe it wasn't working because I used a liquid acrylic paint, and watered it down as well! Or maybe I let the paint get too dry? Anyway, I guess the class lesson was that it is okay to make mistakes, ha ha.
I stuck the masking tape on the pages. That was the end of Lynne's instructions; I am sure hers' looked fantastic. But as mine didn't, I continued on. I put some gesso down in places and finished off with gluing some tissue paper over the top. It's kinda interesting, but I am not overly excited.
