Fun With Tissue Paper Layout!

This was a totally random technique. It really started with being fed up with rub-ons! I typically find rub-ons are too stubborn to really enjoy! Over winter break, I was playing with some of Amy Tangerine-Plus One rub-ons while watching tv in my craft room. There was leftover tissue paper on my table from wrapping a gift. So I just started rubbing! It actually looked cool, I had to use the results. Introducing my Lemon Lush and Maggie Holmes layout with an embellished tissue paper layer.

After I had the tissue paper with the yellow house rub-on adhered to it, I knew I had to use it up. I had the 6x6 pad of Lemon Lush for quite some time and never used any paper from it. So I pulled the pad out to play. 

You can see the yellow house peaking out behind some of the paper on the left of the photo and then the little teal camera to the bottom right of the photo. Loved it! I expected to have the tissue paper tear, but it didn't. The house didn't completely rub off as well as the camera did. But I do like the spotted look of the house. :)

I did not have have Lemon Lush embellishments but the Maggie Holmes-Styleboard elements went beautifully with the photo and paper layers along with a found button and a leftover gold embossed camera from the Amy Tangerine Plus One stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day, Tisha


  1. Beautiful layout, Tisha, love the softness of the rub-ons on the tissue paper!

  2. I never thought of trying rub-ons on tissue paper, but it's a cool look. Love all the layers!

  3. What a clever idea, love how the picture turned out Tisha.

  4. Your layout is very lovely.
    The soft colours then

  5. What a great idea! I never would have though to put rub-ons on tissue paper. It's so great how with scrapbooking you can do anything!

  6. So pretty and a great idea!
    I used to be obsessed with rubons and used them on most of my layouts. I hardly have any now though. Just too many things can go wrong with them.

  7. Rub-ons on tissue paper…who would have thunk ;)
    Great idea and such a wonderful layout
