Watch for it Wednesday #27

This week's Watch for it Wednesday features...
Tissue Paper!!!

Tissue paper can be a very valuable asset to
every scrapbooker! It is a wonderful and
inexpensive way to highlight, enhance, and
give dimension to all of your paper crafting
projects!! There are a multitude of colors to
choose from as well!! Today I chose to use a
scrap of white tissue paper, as well as, a
scrap of white cardstock.


First, I ran the white cardstock through my die
cutting machine to create a die of this sweet
little ghost. After that I took the piece of tissue
paper and crumpled it up into a ball to give
it a wrinkled look. I smoothed it out, just a
little, and ran it through my machine.



I lined the die cut tissue paper up with the die cut
cardstock and glued it on. After, I took a few more
scraps of the tissue paper and crumpled them up.
I then smoothed them out, ever so slightly, and
glued them onto the ghost. The tissue paper adds
dimension and also gives the ghost more of a
flowing, transparent look.

Fun, Fun Fun!!!

Check back on Friday to see
how
I used this little guy!!
