In honor of our brand spanking new blog and our blog hop, I've created a new layout to share with you. I have to tell you that I was inspired by Miss Amy Heller's recent layout for my starting point. Add a little Celine style inspiration and.....Voila!
My main gig here was that I wanted to use the green paper as my background but I didn't want the color quite so strong. What to do???? Add paint of course to soften the color.
I've also been loving using vellum to add a little extra texture and transparency.
Add one of Julie Fei Fan Balzer's masks and I was truly happy with my background.
Well, except that I had to use the Handmade stamp set to add some more texture, pattern and color variation to the background.
That hexagon stamp combined with Colorbox Frost ink = some wonderful texture!
So now it's your turn to leave a comment for your chance to win. Tell me, have you ever used paint to significantly change a background paper for a project? Did you like the result? Leave your comment here and on each of the other blogs for your chance to win!!! Happy Hopping!
