CC2C week 33 tissue tape flowers


This week is the next to last challenge of the Compendium of Curiosities Vol.2 Challenges (sponsored this time by Simon Says Stamp) using Tim's tissue tape techniques and this is my collage using the tissue tape flowers I created.  They remind me of old Prima collage flowers that I had in my stash quite a few years ago that I always loved.  I created a collage with them using a gelli plate monoprint on mulberry paper and a vintage dictionary page all sewn onto a piece of watercolor paper.  I just had to add some handwriting ;-)

Here's a close-up of the flowers with their sewn on vintage button centers:


You can also see some of the monoprinted background.  This one uses one of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's Crafters Workshop stencils: "swirly garden" which gives a great pattern when used as a monoprint with the gelli plate. My favorite version (used here) is the second impression/ghost print after some of the paint has been removed by pressing the stencil to the gelli plate, removing the stencil, and then making the monoprint.
