Hi everyone,

Today is the start of a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey. Lovely Astrid is hosting this months challenge and her chosen theme is 'Tissue Paper' and Astrid says 'there are many different ways you can incorporate tissue paper into your project - create texture by scrunching it up, stain it, paint it, wax it, stamp on it, emboss on it. You could use cheap tissue from the supermarket, recycle gift wrapping tissue, or even use old dressmaking patterns. Just remember to create in one of our preferred styles of vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.'
For our Tissue Paper challenge, I have taken inspiration from the Photo Frame Wall. Hope you like it.

Process steps :
Get a faux canvas panel and apply a thin coat of Vintage Collage Medium to the front of the panel. Set Tim's Collage Paper onto the canvas. Apply a thin, even coat of Vintage Collage Medium over the Tissue Paper.

Allow the medium to dry, then spray panel with Distress Stain Spray. Dry with the Heat tool.

Apply a thin coat of Crazing Collage Medium over the panel and the Idea-ology Quote Chip. But that resulted in NO crackle effect at all.

I smeared some Ranger Opaque Crackle Texture Paste around all the edges, making it thicker in some places and thinner in others. Let dry and crack.


Colouring Collage Paper onto the back with Distress Paints.

Cutting the fake canvas panel and collage paper into small pieces and adhere the collage papers onto the panels.

I smeared some Gesso on Burlap Panel in places and rub a little Ground Espresso Distress Ink around the edge of the panel with a blending tool.

Adding the Idea-ology Quote Chip as the finishing touch.

As always thank you for joining me today and don't forget to hop on over to A Vintage Journey to see all the other fabulous makes for this challenge. And of course, I hope you find the time to join us too.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a nice day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

  4. So many wonderful techniques on this Ann! LOVE how you colored the tissue and cut it into little pictures - great crackle on the edges and beautiful overall design! xx

  5. Ann, your panel is stunning! I think the crackle around the frame highlights the beautiful pictures perfectly and the burlap is such a lovely addition to the whole gorgeous design! Hugs, Anne xx

  6. I love your elegant "photo frame wall". The pop of the red flowers in their little panels is delightful against the rugged textures of burlap and crackle. It's fabulous!

  9. Wonderful Ann! I love that distress collaged base layer with the crackled framing effect. The coloured flowers look stunning on this muted background. Nikki

  10. Ann, this is a true work of art that I would love hanging on my wall! Your idea to paint the flowers and cut the tissue into little panels to hang on the 'wall' is genius and an idea perfectly executed! Your crackled frame is stunning! Hugs! Sara Emily

    PS I'm sure it was frustrating to go to the work with the Crazing only to have no crackle show in the end. Crazing is so subtle, and I find that it does not work on a slick surface such as you had with the Collage medium coat.

  11. Fantastic work Ann! Such a great idea the way you have coloured the tissue paper and layered the small panels onto the background.. Genius! I love all the crackle around the edges too. Thankyou also for the lovely comments you have left on my blog. They are very much appreciated . Toni xx
