Here's my layout for today.
Supplies I used: Paper: DCWV, White Cardstock: ColorBok, cheesecloth, yellow and blue rosettes, Prima flowers, wallpaper flower, Sizzix flower die, seam binding rosette, craft yarn, simulated pearls, needle and thread, tissue paper.
This was a fun layout! I love the colors and how my tissue paper ruffled border turned out.
Here's a closeup of the tissue paper border. After finding the right color of tissue paper, I cut strips lengthwise and folded it in half. I tried a couple of things before the final outcome. I thought pleating it would look good.......No. Next I tried gathering it and gluing to keep it in place..... No.
Then I saw my needle and thread just begging to be used! I thought, "Why not?" Of course, running a needle through tissue paper is a very delicate thing! I had to be very careful when gathering and only did small sections at a time. Then I realized the strips were not long enough! Not a problem, I just added another piece and continued gathering with my needle and thread. I even had a difficult time to see where the two pieces came together! Yay! :)
I attached it to my layout with hot glue, to make sure it stayed in place.
As a final touch, I added simulated pearls to the ruffles.
Hope you like it!
Have a wonderful day and a huge thank you for checking out my Blog!
