Tissue please!


Why would I need tissue? Well this week-end was a creative week-end for me! I had some fun!
When baby Amelie was born I kept everything that was given to me for her, everything including wrapping paper, one of the gift I received was wrapped in bright pink tissue paper (it was a cute little dress from France), I knew that one day I would get to use it for something! Anyway...I took the cutest photo of DD and I just got new Zephyr papers from Scrapping Outback and also some blooms, I was dying to create, I just love Prima lately! After reading one of the new Somerset mags I felt very inspired to do something a little different, with tissue paper! Here is what I created:

What I did with the tissue paper was I glued one big scrunched up piece for the background and then gave it a coat of gesso. I made some rolled up roses with it as well, covered with gesso to mute the bright colour, lastly I glued a piece on some scrap cardstock and die cut shapes out of it, I then covered with one coat of Picket Fence Distress Stain for a different effect :)

I made a little piggy tail out of blue twine for fun!
