Visual journals are always my students' favorite project of the year. It is a space for them to express themselves, experiment with materials, and take a break from regular projects. It is a great project for middle school and high school age students.
Every Friday I introduce a new material and technique my students can use in their visual journal. One very useful material is bleeding tissue paper. It looks similar to watercolor, with a wider range of functions. My
This worksheet shows seven different ways bleeding tissue paper can be used. It helps prevent students from asking the same question over again, and shows other options I may not have time to demonstrate.
On the back of this how to worksheets are a range of bleeding tissue paper, visual journal page examples. If you have the resources to print this on the back of the worksheet for each student, it is a great visual guide. If you are tight on color printing you can project this image while explaining the project or print a single version students can look at.
