Make it Monday Challenge

Hi there dear friends!!!!  I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your summer months!  I am certainly enjoying summer since school is out and I have time to do those things I have been needing and wanting to do!!!  I spent Monday finishing up planting the garden and flower beds and what a good feeling that was!  Today it's raining outstide and I'm spending some time getting ready for the Farmer's Market.  I have lot's to do, but creating is so theraputic that my soul is being refreshed for sure!  I have been wanting to make some banners to see for the market and I figured out a way to participate in the Make it Monday Challenge and check another project off my list!!!  Whooo hooo!  I love it when things come together!!!

Here's the challenge:

Make It Monday #18: Adding Texture with Tissue Paper

Take a peek at the MIM video! You will love this technique!! I guarantee it!!

Here's my take on the challenge:
I decided it would work perfectly to alter the letters with Betsy's tissue paper technique and I am loving the results!

I cut out the letters on the Cricut machine using the A Child's Year Cartridge.  The size of the letters is 2.75 inches.
You can see the subtle difference the tissue paper made.
 I mounted the letters on Papetrey Ink's Mat Stack 1 tag.
 I added a Tim Holtz Pearl Bauble between each of the Boxy Banners.
 I dyed the natural flowers with Tattered Angels Cherub Pink mist.

Supplies used:  Pink Paislee:  Butterfly Garden Papers and Ephemera;  Papertrey Ink: Mat Stack 1 Die,  Boxy Banner Die, Mat Stack 1 Stamp Collection, Button Twine, Sweet Blush Cardstock; Tim Holtz by Ranger: Baubles, Crushed Olive and Tea Dye Distress Ink; Prima: Roses and Lace; Tattered Angels Cherub Pink Mist; Recycled Tissue Paper; Cricut Cartridge: A Child's Year.

What a fun project this was!!! Thanks for the inspiration Papertrey Ink!!!  My heart has been filled with creative goodness and it makes me smile!!!

Thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog!!!
You are so special and I am thankful for you!
