I have been having a lot of fun designing pages with this paper packet. I teamed it with Kraft cardstock, which is a firm favourite with my ladies, and brought in a little bling. Plus I'm on a colouring kick, and experimenting with different techniques.
Get the lookWatercolouring technique - first I stamped my images with Archival Black ink, and allowed them to dry thoroughly. I used a soft bristle brush dipped in water and then picked up ink from the lid of my ink pad, and brushed this onto my images before fussy cutting them out.
Stitching - I added stitching to the page by first using the stitch guide ruler and piercing tool, then threading black cotton through the holes.
Doodling - Once I had cut out my photo mats to the desired size, I used my Uchida black journaling pen to draw a fine border around the inside edges. Don't worry if your lines aren't perfect - that's the point! I never use a ruler for this kind of line.
Bling - I cut a Cricut circle and used this as a guide before applying many Bitty Sparkles to the page.
