I’ve committed myself to blogging on a regular basis and decided that Thursdays would be great for “Tips on Thursdays”. I’ll share a stamping/creating tip each Thursday for you to use.
I love to have matching papers when I’m working on a layout. Sometimes, though, the perfect paper can’t be found. What’s a girl to do? Make it, of course! With Close to My Heart Acrlix Stamps, it’s as easy as can be!! I took the Wanderful WOTG stamp set (lovely by the way) and created a collage stamp by putting several of the stamps on the block. If you are new to Close to My Heart and my blog, welcome and let me explain that our wonderful stamps are clear so you can see what you are doing when you stamp.
Once the block was set up so it would stamp the way I wanted, I started to stamp a random pattern also know as “random stamping” on the paper (paper is Crystal Blue and Ink Pad is Crystal Blue):
In minutes, I’d created a great background and texture paper for my layout which added depth and style to another wise bland piece of paper. This is not a new technique but one I sometimes forget that I have in my back pocket. Best of all, I was using supplies I already had so it cost me nothing!! Hope you enjoyed your “Tips on Thursday”.
