I signed up for the wonderful 'Life Book' classes and watched a video of Christy Tomlinson creating a gorgeous art journal page using aluminium foil, sprays and coffee filters. I then had a dabble and experiment with these materials. I was not very happy with my results but I believe the technique has lots of potential - even if I haven't personally seen it yet!!!
Here is a photographic journal of my playing.
lay stencils over coffee filters
dry coffee filters
Use gel medium to glue the filters to the foil.
