8. Attach your pieces to the canvas and you have a beautiful piece of art.

9. Sprinkle a few sequins to the canvas for a little interest .



I loved using this tissue paper, so with the left over word tissue paper I created this pumpkin! I first inked the word tissue paper with Memento Morocco and then tore it into small strips. With Creative Medium, I decoupaged the colored tissue paper onto a plastic pumpkin from  the dollar store.
