Linda has taken us to page 66 of the "Compendium of Curiosities." I know the meaning of "Stupid is as stupid does" now, because today I have Forrest Gumped my way through this challenge. First of all I did not have the "special medium," so used Mod Podge. The use of Mod Podge was probably fine, but my idea for vintage paper was less than ideal. I did not have any old books that needed a good tearing! First attempt I printed some nice vintage music sheet paper and I put my MP on the printed side. I can't tell you #2 stupid, because it might give away too much. Then of course I realized that it certainly would not tear very well due to the thickness!! Next step we had the most brilliant idea to use tissue paper, so we stamped words on the tissue paper. So far so good! We then added the glue which went right through the tissue paper and glued down on my surface! Ok, the next brilliant idea was to use rice paper - it is sturdy. Again with stamp and ink in hand it was stamped. This works better than tissue paper, but leaves behind little hairy legs after tearing, which we clipped and clipped. I lost the white from the rice paper and have something more cruddy gray!
Thank you Linda for taking me on this adventure and no, I did not swear once or run for a Margarita! This will be a redo with the correct materials at a later date! As always your visits and comments are deeply appreciated.
