I am loving this art technique. I can use some neat photos taken with my favorite photo app, Hipstamatic. (See post on Photo Apps.)
Here is a photo step by step direction.
Sand and paint the sides. I find these little frames at stores like Ross with goofy sayings like: “Move over coffee, this is a job for WINE!”
Add an even coat of gel medium. I like a matte version.
Lay photo on top and rub into the gel. Careful not to rub too hard to tear the paper. I use my fingers and a block of wood. Let set up at least overnight.
Spray the paper with water and gently rub the paper off. Careful not to rub too hard and remove the photo.
Add a coat of gel medium on top and press different textures into it. I’ve used bubble wrap, mesh bags, plastic wrap.
Finish with a few paint flourishes.

Did this little experiment. I found this product, PB Fit, which is typically used in smoothies. (Enjoying it now with spinach and banana.) What if I used this instead of peanut butter in peanut sauce for a less fat alternative?
Cook a pound of diced chicken in large skillet, remove and set aside. Add one can of light coconut milk (with ½ teaspoon ginger paste, 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce) and cook on medium stirring continually, until warm, about 3 minutes. Add 3-4 tablespoons of PB Fit whisking to mix thoroughly. Once it is to the consistency you prefer, add back in your chicken with spinach, shredded carrots, peapods and any other ingredients, cover and heat about 10 minutes. I served over shredded cabbage for low carb version.
Yes. Full flavor, less fat. And….one pot.
Who wouldn’t need this?
Our table was fun.
The tornado centerpiece was my design as well.
