Painted tissue paper

A good week!
I already know that the class I am taking at the Art Center is a winner.
Our first class we painted tissue paper...don't laugh.  We used sponge brushes on wet tissue that was stuck to a white trash bag.  We then were assigned to use the tissue as collage in something we created at home.  My topic was "dance"

Dance like no one's watching
I used the tissue as the frame on this one.
I now have enough painted tissue to last me the rest of my life.  My file bag of collage paper is so heavy I can hardly lift it.
Then yesterday I resurrected a painting I had done a couple of months ago and essentially
spilled all of my frustrations on it.  I am not sure that it improved, but the process put me in a 
great frame of mind.

And now for my technical difficulties.  For the past few weeks I havent been able to comment on most of the blogs I visited.  Only a few of them would show my comment.  The rest disappeared into the great beyond.  It was suggested that I clean out our "cookies" which I have done.  We will see this week if it helped.  If you have any ideas, please share them.
Wishing you all a Happy PPF

Painted tissue! Looks great as the frame. I thought it was acrylic. Dance is beautiful. Love the idea of spilling frustrations on a painting. The second painting is wonderful.

Wet tissues stuck to a trash bag .... Interesting! I love your remade painting. No idea how it looked before, but it sure looks good now! It's weird (and frustrating!) that you can't comment! I haven't had any difficulties as far as I know, so I don't know of a solution, sorry ...
