Tissue paper roses

I'm still sitting here in the hotel room with my fingers itching and I'm having major cutting withdrawals. So I just had to go and get myself some scissors. It was the best ones I ever had. So sharp and perfect for detailed cutting. I highly recommend Cutter Bee's scissors from EK success.

For the longest time I've been meaning to try to work with tissue paper and now was the perfect time. So with my new scissors, a glue stick and tissue paper I made some roses.
I made them exactly the same way as I did the rolled up card stock roses.

I'm almost positive that the tissue paper is not acid free so I don't know if I would put them on a layout. But they could look nice on a present.
I've been trying to find some spray that can make your projects acid free. Anyone has any idea what it's called and where I can find it?

I'm gonna go back to my scissors now and see if I can find something to cut up;)

Pin It!

If I'm not mistaken (and I could be) I believe the spray you're looking for is by Krylon. It's called (surprise, surprise) Make it Acid Free. I found it in art supply store and also in one of those big box chain craft stores, either Michaels or Joanns. I will warn you that it is very expensive, but for me it was worth it to have peace of mind.

A few years ago I bought a mist and it was expensive (about $40 for about 6 oz) called Archiver's Mist. It was a very thin liquid and it very well could make the colors bleed in tissue paper. Isn't the problem caused by the acidic paper actually touching the photo or being behind a plastic film with the photo? The reason I asked is that the thickness of a flower like this might make it hard to put behind plastic anyway. Perhaps there are other kinds of the same mist that are not a "free flowing" and therefore less likely to make the colors bleed. I've used Archivers Mist on LO's with acidic items to make them safe and the color on the cardstock bled a little. So I've been told that color on the cardstock as opposed to all the way through it, is less stable.

By the way, your roses are very beautiful. I would sure love to be able to put them on LO's. I've got a couple that they would be perfect for. Thanks for sharing that with us.
