TT18-Paper Pleating


Today's Teusday's Throwdown is paper pleating! A fun technique you can play around with lots of different ways. For my card I chose to make a pleated border that I stitched into place. I think next time I would lightly mist the paper so it was easier to work with. For my image I used the Sweet 'n Sassy set, Morning Glories and colored them with Prismacolor pencils leaving lots of white. I added white gel pen dots to my scallop mat and a button and twine to finish it off. I hope you'll come on over and join us this week!
