These backgrounds utilise Tissue Paper to make easy peasy Faux Leather backgrounds – these are so easy to make you can do them with your eyes shut!

What You Need:

  • Tissue Paper
  • Card Stock
  • PVA or White Glue
  • Glue Spreader
  • Acrylic Paint or Dye Re-inkers

Directions:

1. Crumple your tissue paper into a tight ball, open it up again and set it aside.

2. Spread a generous amount of glue over the surface of your card stock using a credit card or plastic spreader.

3. Working quickly, tap the tissue paper down over the glued surface, do NOT flatten it out as you want lots of nice texture and crinkles in the background. Let it dry.

4. Now you need to add colour – either acrylic paints OR you can use dye reinkers or smoosh an inkpad over the top dtp style. Once the colour has dried you are ready make artwork with your backgrounds!
