Face 16

OK, so I didn't draw this from scratch.
This is my granddaughter, Molly, on her first day of Kindergarten.
I changed the digital photo to black and white, bumped the contrast,
then printed it onto tissue paper from my laser printer.
Then I collaged it onto this background and went to town with
pastel pencils. I love how this turned out!!

Thanks for looking!


  1. And...........It is beautifully manipulated. She is pretty.

  2. Wonderful artwork and idea!

  3. What a great idea - I've been reading about printing on tissue paper. I love the effect.

  4. Wow, you can print tissue paper off your printer? COOL.

  5. Yep! Carefully tape the tissue paper onto cardstock nice and smooth, wrapped around to the backside, and taped securely. Then print away. Voila! :)
