The top picture is of the tissue paper before i added anything so you could see the effect.
I had lots of messy fun making the background. It is just lots of pva glue and torn tissue paper. I started by painting a layer of pva on a teflon sheet i then covered with a layer of tissue paper trying to keep the colours random, then added more pva, then tissue paper and so on till i was happy with it, think i did about 5 layers. It is the waiting for it to dry i didn't like took 2 days to dry properly, then i peeled it off the teflon sheet and cut to size. I have embellished them quite simply as i didn't want to take all the focus from the background. I should add although the pearl brads look green they are actually white lol.

I am a keen crafter and i love to experiment.
Altering things, jewellery and atcs are my favourite crafty things at the moment although i do like to combine my crafts. I am rubbish with instructions so i tend to make things up as i go along.
