Papertrey Ink- June 2011 Blog Hop!

Once again, it is time for the Papertrey Blog Hop and there are some incredibly beautiful creations to inspire (which might necessitate some additional time in the craft cave!)!
And yes....... still using all of my tissue flowers (and still working on my novice photo skills!).


The inspiration photo was pure loveliness.

I had left over bits so made one more card for this challenge:

OMGoodness....... I don't think anyone wants to know how many photos I've taken of these TWO cards, how many Photoshop edits I've made OR how many times I've called out "Honey......can you help me?".
Trial and error, right?

Make It Monday #18: Adding Texture with Tissue Paper


Ok.... so now that I've sort of/barely gotten the hang of this blogging thing I thought that I'd attempt another Make It Monday!
I love the idea of the faux silk look and a lovely tissue paper flower. However, having it all come together was not as easy as it sometimes is - guess that it just was not a mojo kinda day! Anyway, I wanted to do something different with the tissue paper background..... I covered my kraft piece with glue, attached PTI  rustic jute twine in a diamond pattern, covered the whole thing with my fancy tissue paper (a HUGE pack from my neighbor- left over from her wedding invitations 20+ years ago!), and added a little more of the fancy tissue paper for the flower and a little snippet of ribbon/lace. Et voila!
