Cast Paper Fat Book Page

I used toilet tissue, layed it over a plastic mold and sprizted the tissue. I used a small brush to gently push the tissue into the mold and allowed to dry. I then repeated the layering and misting for about 8 layers of toilet tissue. I then filled in the raised area with extra bits of tissue. This one was mounted on watercolour paper and coated with 3 coats of matt medium. I stitched a row of beads and random single beads through the layers. The finale step was to attach the 2.5 X 3.5 inch card on to a 4 X 4.5 inch fat book page of watercolour paper printed with a scan of silk painting.
