I have been playing with toilet paper molds today....I have Pam Carriker's book
Art at the Speed of Lite and she has lots of neat techniques in the book; this being one of them.  I thought I would show you that now you buy toilet paper not to use in the bathroom but in the studio room....the toilet tubes for journals and the tissue for molds...
I didn't cut them really close and well because they still are a little damp and this is my first crack at doing this.  It sure is fun..the hearts are made from the toilet tissue..the fleur de lis was made from the backing of napkins.  I have a napkin one drying and decided I would let it dry naturally until tomorrow morning.  I also have a face from a polymer clay mold drying and will leave that one until tomorrow...the leaves one I sprayed after it was almost dry to see what Glimmer Mist would be like on it...I only did a couple of sprays so the next time I will do more...I did the little flower out of patterned tissue paper and it came out okay but it was too hard to cut out because of the pattern so I will try on some plain tissue next....Thanks Pam...this is going to be lots of fun to do and to add the embellisments to cards and other projects....
Any questions you have just email me....
So instead of working on my swaps I played....me bad!!!
