Tips and techniques

Well I’ve had 3 days with my grandchildren and now it’s time to get ready for the garden party on Saturday. I will keep you up to date with photos as and when I can but it’s going to be chaos here for a few days.

So in the meantime I thought I’d share some recent techniques we have used both in class and from classmates who have added extras when they got home.

1. Using a stencil with Distress Ink Pens and TH Air Spritzer (love this one)


2. Using Horse Shoes instead of flowers to decorate a western layout.


3. Adding lace to highlight a photo


4. Making a photo into a pocket so that hidden journaling can go on the tag.


5. Using texture paste and a stencil (don’t forget you can find the texture paste recipe HERE )


6. Using silhouette die cuts to add detail to your layout


And of course there are loads more.

A special thank you to Maria who allowed me to photograph her layouts.

Fingers crossed for sunshine on Saturday xxx
