I might be getting in to my stride with the July kit from Like For Ever...
Although looking at this now, perhaps it could use a title somewhere?
This is all about the background paper. It had white triangles on it - how to use it without obliterating them? Well I cut templates of each one (of course they were all different sizes!) and stacked up transparent layers. I attached them by running them through my sewing machine - just one line of stitching so I could bend up the edges for dimension.
I scattered some rub on triangles over the layout and added quite a lot of black ink. Every time I thought I'd finished with the ink I went back and added a little bit more!
The thing I love most about this layout though are the juicy layers under the photo. Tonnes of layers, all different colours and materials - plain vellum, plain tissue paper, patterned paper, patterned vellum, cardstock, tissue paper used to mop up inks, and finally a piece of stripy packaging.
Entering at Simon Says Stamp - no ordinary paper.
Thanks for stopping by today.
