Tissue Paper Pinworthies

Hello everyone, this is Astrid here to announce our pinworthy choices from our June challenge Tissue Paper.
Like always, it was really hard to whittle it down to just 3, but needs must, so without further ado and in no particular order, here they are:

We loved the way tissue paper was used both for the cover and the inside pages of this wonderful album. The detail on all the pages is amazing!
Even though tissue paper is not the main feature in this project, we really liked this fabulous little house with all the natural elements and gorgeous textures.
The creative guides adored the super clever technique with embossing paste and tissue paper on this fabulous ornate tag. The effect achieved looks amazing!

We would like to thank all our wonderful participants for playing in our June challenge and congratulations to our amazingly talented winners, we will be sending you your AVJ Pinworthy badges to display on your blogs very soon.

There is still plenty of time to play in our current challenge Precious Metal, so do check it out to get all the details.

Thanks for stopping by like always,

Astrid and the Creative Guides
