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.
