"fairy tales"









...aussie scrap source have a fantastic challenge happening - why not check it out!

  
This was the first weeks challenge - making backgrounds using paints mists medium what ever you could get you hands on!!

"cupcake"




I love this making memories foam stamp and I’ve had it for years… I’ve used it for lots of things and this is one way I like to use it.

How to create my background:

- Place a Couple of strips of masking tape on your card stock.
- Pick a color and paint the masking tape. Allow to dry
- Paint the entire background with white gesso. Be generous.
- While the gesso is wet use you stamp and stamp the entire background.
- Spray a little shimmerz on the stamp and randomly stamp in places. This adds a subtle hint of another color.
- let it dry.
- Now scrap it.

I love the pattern and texture this gives!
