Melange Tissue Paper. The one with music and butterflies :) Trusting the mess is really hard. The colours aren't what I wanted, the stencils didn't look like a forest of wildflowers... but "trust the mess" we're always told. Its just a background...!
Tim Holtz wildflowers? They've been die cut using both sets of Tim Holtz Thinlits Wildflower Dies with my Cuttlebug. The flowers on the left are handmade ricepaper and the others are made of kraft cardboard.
All the wildflowers were glued in place using gel medium. At least they seemed to calm down the mess. It needed to dry so gave up looking at it and went onto making the flowers and leaves.
Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Adhesive Backed Textile Sheets and watercolour paper.
A few stickers by Tim Holtz were added. I love the sayings Tim's found and collated together for his sticker packs and washi tape. I have a computer and printer with the whole internet filled with quotes and clever sayings, plus hundreds of books! But there's something awesome about stickers and I don't know what it is, I just know I love stickers :)
We have an advert down here in SA about teaching kids to budget (from a bank). The Dad says, "is it a need or a want?" and the little girl says "but Daddy, they're stickers...". Yep. I totally get what she's saying :) lol
So here it is, a bonsai flowering river red gum (eucalyptus camaldulensis). Thanks to Louise for such a wonderful theme. I loved making this page :) xx Jenny
