The students in my summer art classes really enjoyed this two day project.  Day 1 they cut or tore tissue paper for their background.  They used a water/glue mixture to create the overlapping layers on mat board.  By day 2 the mat board was dry and flattened (one reason I keep those heavy books around!) and it was time to create the printing “stamps”.  They drew their sea creature onto adhesive backed foam, cut it out, then stuck it to a piece of cardboard.  Using  a brayer, they rolled ink onto the stamp, then stamped repeated images.  I encouraged them to stamp right off the paper.
