SaWo – Tissue paper

I made some fabric paper last month for a swap and to try it out for the first time. I used an old sewing pattern – tissue paper – and plain white tissue paper so that the words on the pattern would show through. I added food dyes to the final coat of PVA glue and it was rather bright and pretty transparent. I sent a piece of the finished sheet to my swap partner and made a small book containing arty quotes on the inner pages. So this is my entry to Saturday’s Workout. Edited: And also for Laura’s LOC ‘Books’ challenge, which I didn’t remember till now….

Here it is:

I hope my swap partner enjoys it!!
