Using the White Layers of the Napkins

 This is third video CreativeKady Karen Burchill has created using napkins, this time with the often discarded white layers! She uses stencils to paint images on the layers for later use in mixed media art. This is also a fantastic technique to use for decoupage as it would allow you to put stencils onto curved surfaces like a vase more easily.                                       Click here to watch the video
