I really like it when I can use a particular product in a variety of ways. I don't like to be limited to a single usage. The reason is that I am likely to get tired of using a thing the same way over and over, or even twice, if the truth is told.
This is one of the things I really enjoy about Scrapbook Circle's printable products. Each month, Scrapbook Circle offers a new printable in the Main Kit. This month, there was a fantastic rainbow stripe card and a fun black and white triangle border piece.
While they were great as they were, I really wanted them to be a little different. Soooo, I altered them to suit my needs.
Since they come as a png, you can select and duplicate portions of the printable and change it as you desire. I wanted the rainbow card to be closer to a full sheet of paper, or at least to have it longer than it was. All I had to do was duplicate that section and drag it until it matched the existing pattern but created a larger version. In my case, I duplicated it three times and then printed.
I did the same with the black and white border to give ma a longer boarder piece.
You can see that I used the rainbow to back the Dear Lizzy cards from the kit. I also used the Lucky Girl add-on for the Amy Tan templates to sew that fun camera onto my page.
You may also notice that the kit contained pink feathers. However, I could only use so many pink feather on my projects. No problem, I altered my feathers too! For the one on this page, I sprayed it with several colors of mist, including a metallic gold mist from Heidi Swap to give it a unique Ombre effect. Then, when it had dried, I gave it a haircut to tone down on the fluff.
