Two simple parchment designs for a beginner
PCA Christmas template and I painted the back with red Pan Pastel. Pan Pastels blend nicely on parchment, but this time I used only the one color. Then I decorated my tree with gemstones. I plan to do future trees with additional colors, and some rhinestones. You could certainly use pearls too. Also, in parchment craft, you can get really creative with additional background patterns, cutouts etc. I didn't want to detract from the tree itself on this one, since I tend to be rather simple!
I'm making many others this week, which I will post as they are complete. One thing to remember when learning this craft is not to hesitate to throw away your mistakes! It's why you need to have plenty of parchment on hand. Get it here in the US from me -- it's why I carry it.
