Try it Tuesday - Acetate and Tissue

The products needed to complete this technique are: Acetate sheet, white tissue paper, crystal effects and ink refill.

Step One: Place some crystal effects on the acetate sheet.

Step Two: Add some drops of ink refill onto the acetate sheet and crystal effects.

Step Three: Mix the crystal effects and ink refill together in a circular motion. I recommend using rubber gloves as this gets very messy.

Step Four: Scrunch up the tissue paper.

Step five: Place the tissue paper over the acetate sheet and carefully pat down. You need to try and keep the wrinkles in it.

Step Six: Allow to dry completely before completing your project.
