insider tip

continuing on with texture week, I wanted to show how I like to add a little texture to a page with paint. It's really simple and the texture is flat yet dimensional which I find desirable
when scrapping.

All you'll need is paint, an old plastic card, and a foam brush.


brush some paint along the edge of the card.

place the card, paint side down onto your card stock and drag it down putting pressure towards
the middle of the card. This will create a more solid block of color. If you want less, apply less pressure.





see...easy peasy.
