Making Your Own Pattern Tissue Paper

Pattern Tissue Paper DIY

I used craft metallic acrylic paints to stamp my own tissue paper for collage. The stamps were handmade as well, so I know they are not going to be repeated anywhere. HOW COOL! Check them out here:






Some of the colors that I used were: Gold, Copper and Silver. The paints are acrylic, mostly craft brand, like Americano and DecoArt. The best part, when you mix a gold and a silver paint together, you get this beautiful golden-silver color which is so unique. i think the magenta paper is one of my favorite - it is made with my own stamp I made out of craft foam. Love it!

I thought it would be fun to paint a girl who is just surrounded with flowers that are falling from a night sky.





Lots of watercolors, water soluble oil pastels and some acrylic paint.
