Challenge #215 week of 30th May 2016

I'm always on the lookout for a "new" product to use on my pages. The scrapbook industry is good at encouraging us to buy the next latest and greatest but sometimes there are items just hanging around that are perfect to use on our pages but maybe you just don't notice them. Tissue paper is one those items.

Therefore, this week I'd like you to be inspired by tissue paper

I added some to a kit I made last year and then even managed to use it on a page or two after noticing that Rahel Menig often added a roughly torn layout underneath her many layers. This is the layout I made inspired by her style

Then I counterfeited some tissue paper flowers for a Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit last year. They never made it onto layouts to be honest but they were super quick and easy to make so maybe this is some inspiration for you and you never know, I might give them another go.

And just this last month, I used the tissue paper that my Scrapabilly kit came wrapped in to add a confetti border as well as a multi-layered photo mat. I love the textural detail it gives without the bulk.

And to give credit where credit is due, I got the idea of tissue confetti from Susan who sent me a wonderful selection of large and smaller multi-coloured tissue paper confetti after I oo'ed and ah'ed about some of her sprinkled pages! I've made other confetti myself before but just from paper.

So, get that tissue paper out of your wrapping paper box and get creative with it. I know that I'm really going to try to get this prompt done sooner rather than later!

We'd love you to be inspired by this prompt and hope you will share your creations - there are now two ways to do this!

You can either upload your layout into the Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#215 or you can post it in our Whimsical Musings Facebook group. We've decided that we'll save albums for special occasions so just load up your photo to the group with the tag WM#215 in the write up text so that we can find it.
