Happy Monday Dear Friends!
It's my turn today to share a creation for the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog.
Khristina is our hostess and she's asked us to use TISSUE PAPER on our projects!
Now, I must admit, tissue paper is the LAST thing I would think
to pick up and incorporate into my projects but I'm really glad she has inspired
me to 'give it a whirl'! Here's what I came up with . . .
Originally I thought of just stamping my image/sentiment then
just crinkling the tissue paper and putting it onto colored
card stock but then I got the bright idea to try and color the 'sky' area
My first attempt was WAY TOO HEAVY on the color and
actually couldn't pick out the stamped image. So, I tried it again with
a 'lighter hand' on the color burst and was happier this time around.
After adding my color burst I spritzed the tissue paper with water
to 'bleed' the colors and carefully dried it with my heat gun
before 'crinkling' and gluing it to my white card stock panel.
I really like the crinkling effect and, a touch of faux stitching was all that was necessary to accent
my beautiful tissue paper panel.
I hope you'll give this TISSUE PAPER idea a try and then
come share your project with us at the USE YOUR STUFF blog.
Till next time, thanks for stopping by and have an awesome week ahead!
As always . . .
