Sue loves using patterned papers. They are the first item she looks for to compliment her photos. Sue has recently discovered the gorgeous printed tissue paper, produced by 7 gypsies. The tissue paper is available in several designs but Sue chose the lovely Birdsong Collage, to use. Sue decided that the tissue paper really needed to be layered to show off it's beautiful texture.
She used a both a quickutz die and a Martha Stewart Punch All Over the Page, Classic Butterfly punch to cut multiple layers of butterflies. Sue stitched the layers together with her sewing machine and then hand-stitched sequins and beads to the centre of each of the butterflies. Sue teamed the luscious brown tissue butterflies with the soft pinks papers from Crate Paper designs and gorgeous pink Prima flowers. She also added in a layer of Hambly transparency to add another dimension to the layout.
The result is a pretty floral layout which compliments the photo of Sue's daughter Lily, out walking with a parasol.
Leeann thinks we are definitely spoilt for choice when it comes to paper accents. So when Leeann saw these already made paper accents by Crate Paper/Emma's shoppe she knew exactly what she want to create with them,(pocket wallet). All they needed now was Leeann’s arty touch.
Trim the paper accents and lay them out. Start by randomly stamping with ink and paint using bubble wrap and an assortment of rubber stamps. Then give all the paper accents a white wash all over. Finish off with some doodling using gel pens.
Cut a strip a little wider than the paper accents from Donna Downey 12 x 12 canvas sheet/heart and used this as a cover. Line everything up and machine stitch through the centre.
