Just have to show you this,,,as I am writing up my post I hear this extremely loud noise.
 I have the back door open and my pond is only about 15 ft away.
 I know its a toad singing but had no idea we had one or where it
could have come from.I took a flashlight out and this guy is in the shallow
 water on the ponds edge singing away. He was just finishing
his song when I snapped the pic, you can still see a little
of his vocal sac

Wow can you believe it is already the end of April...this year is zooming by isn't it!
So are you ready for the new FOSTV Challenge?
 This week it is to use tissue paper and there are SO ways to use it.
I've decided to try it on a altered art piece.Starting with and 8x8 canvas
I covered it with tissue paper and mod podge. Next I using  the large
crackle stamp from Cracked Hello Set and the musical sheet from Just A Note Set 
to stamp randomly. I also used the Ivy in the corner from the Ivy & Blossom Set. 
Next I applied pink,aqua, lavender, green and a printed tissue paper then added some textures
 with modeling paste.I also used some glimmer mists.

Using the seed packet from the Seed Packet Set  I added a part of the dogwood from the Dogwood
 Blossom Set. After attaching it to the canvas I added a little more tissue to some of the edges.

The Chipboard Heart was covered with pink tissue, embossed and then stamped with
the three love sentiments from the Love Love Love Set. Next the tissue flowers

 were made and attached. Lastly I printed out the quote, outlined it and attached.My talented teammates have creations showing you a variety
of ways to used tissue paper, so be sure to stop by our
challenge and check them out!

 This is the Stamp Set for this weeks winner.

Firstly what a great frog pic - love the fact that he is still in the act of singing. More importantly what a great piece. I don't know if Debbie was able to add it to the team post but it wasn't up by the time I collapsed into bed - shame because it is gorgeous. I love all the elements, the lovely spring colours and the different uses of tissue paper - a great job.

Oh my goodness what a stunning canvas!! I love it! And your pretty flowers are so at home on this piece ... Love that little heart too ...
What a great photo of your frog! My cats used to bring them in when we lived in the other house ... they would be hopping up the stairs! They are so yucky to get hold of ...

Davi, what wonderful way to use tissue. The designs and embossing are beautifully worked into it. Awesome! I love the tissue flowers. I think I have made only one tissue flower ever. Have a great week!

Benzi said...

Oh, I meant to say you captured a great photo of your frog. I hear them at my pond sometimes and at my neighbor's pond. At night, we hear big bull frogs.
