Tissue Paper Flowers

Happy Spring! These tissue paper flowers are simply layered tissue paper on wax paper. Tissue paper is a great medium for any age and can easily be used in place of wet mediums.  The thin layers of paper offer a wonderful light quality in a window and a fun experiment with color mixing for little people, and big people too!

Hi,

Did you attach the tissue paper with gloss or matte medium? These are so pretty and I can't wait to try this project with my kinders!

Love your blog! I just gave you a versatile blogger award: http://vividlayers.blogspot.com/2011/04/versatile-blogger-award.html

My blog friends are mostly elementary art teachers, so perhaps they will be inspired by your work!

Now I want to see more of your art projects!!
