{ Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - April }

The challenge: This month let's focus on tissue paper! It has become one of the hottest trends in the paper crafting world and we want to see you take it on! Whether it is die-cutting it to make beautiful layered blooms, the faux silk technique, creating layered backgrounds or even delicate stitched pleated borders, we want to see you get creative! And don't forget, your new stamps arrive lovingly wrapped in tissue paper each month, so these can prove to be "free & green" projects as well! Have fun and we look forward to seeing all of your projects!


I created a flower from tissue paper. I have a wonderful tutorial here. I made layers of tissue paper and patterned paper sprayed with Shimmerz and Glimmer Mist.
I used Guide Lines Two for my stamped background strip and Mega Mixed Messages for the sentiment. The blue ribbon is seam binding sprayed with Shimmerz Vibez.

Supplies: Mega Mixed Messages and Guide Lines Two stamp set, PTI button, Making Memories and MME patterned paper, The Paper Studio brad, October Afternoon journaling note, tissue paper, machine stitching, Scarlet Glimmer Mist, Ruby and Cotton Candy Shimmerz Spritz, Blue Jeans and Jeni B Blue Vibez, Making Memories pin.
