STEP 1: Roughly paint your subject matter on sturdy paper. I used tempera! I also created positive shapes by painting in the negative Let dry.

STEP 2: Cut out tissue paper shapes and adhere them to the painting, overlapping in places. I used liquid acrylic medium. Remember that some tissues are very fragile and will likely tear. Don't worry about any wrinkles that might form. Coat the piece with medium to seal. Allow to dry.

STEP 3: Add accent lines with ink and a fine brush, or with markers. Use black or dark colors.
