Any patterned tissue will work. These are facial tissues but napkins or gift tissue work equally well.
Because the Velvet Art Anthology paint is dimensional it was difficult to get a smooth texture. Luckily for me, the brush strokes are what I wanted!
The decoupage glue is still wet in this photo. The colors of the tissue lightened up considerably when it was dry.
When the glue dries it has a matte finish so it is not shiny. It adds just a little texture to the piece.
Clear Wink of Stella on the "3" and "1".
Leaky Shed chipboard key was colored with orange marker, the edges were distressed and then a touch of orange Golden acrylic paint was added for brightness and shine.
A touch of black around the edges gives the canvas a more "finished" look.
The hourglass is from an old Mailbox Muse kit.
Scanned copy. The Canvas is ready to hang or stand on a shelf.
