I love art supplies.
When I hear about something new I can't wait to get my hands on it & play!
I also love it when I can replicate the results with things I already have on hand.
A couple of weeks ago I bought this amazing tissue paper by 7gypsies.
As you can tell by the price tag it's not cheap, but just a little bit in the right project is beautiful.
I used some in the windows on this journal page.
When I finish I think it will look pretty cool.
I like to make my own tissue paper using this simple method I learned from Hanne Matthiesen.
Tape a deli sheet to a piece of copy paper. Make sure to tape it down carefully so it doesn't get caught in your printer.
I copy book pages, journals, anything, it's awesome!
I think they've been around for awhile, don't know how I missed them!
I love the consistency & the way they blend on so many surfaces.
I waxed my homemade tissue paper onto cardboard, then applied the PenPastel over the top.
It works go great on wax!
Next I copied this gorgeous picture & used color pencil to add highlights.
Using beeswax I covered her with my tissue paper & added even more depth with the PanPastel.
I'm really happy with the results.
I switched it up on this one, placing the photo on top.
I know this was a short post but the kids are about to explode with excitement.
We're on our way to Broken Bow, OK for a week of camping!
Have a great week!
