did these with tissue and acrylic paint, im not a great fan of orange but was told to do the background with it as they are comlimentry colours.

I know what you mean about the orange background, but I love the idea of using Tissue paper and the finished picture has a very contemporary look and a mediterean feel, I like it;0))

I said it on facebook and I'll say it here too....you've got the poppy colour spot on San! :D I love the tissue paper effect. I've started my big tissue paper pic. I've done some tree shapes and I'm going to add some hosta leaves with tissue paper too....funnily enough the background is golden..like a sunset! ;) Will show you when I get around to finishing it!
