Hi there everyone. Adrienne here.....
For our project this time I decided we could all try some background techniques on our layouts. I hope you like my experimentation. The swirls on my LO are stamped using a blend of different coloured chalk inks on clear stamps. Once inked up, spritz the stamp with water and stamp on paper. It works best on watercolour paper as ordinary cardstock curls a bit as it drys. But, hey, it was FUN!! I also used the inks to distress other parts of the LO. I really enjoyed doing this LO. Hope you enjoy trying this technique.

Hi everyone,
My technique for this theme is to use a serviette as a background 'paper'.
This is a really quick and simple technique to do.
Firstly find a serviette that you like and cut it down to fit your page....I tore the edges of mine.
Then peel away the two layers of white backing paper from the printed top piece.
I used a spray adhesive to then attach the now thin layer of tissue paper to my page.
Gently smooth out the tissue to remove any air bubbles underneath and you are then ready to add your photo and embellishments to the page.

Serviettes and tissues then take on a whole new world of possibilities!
Have fun with this technique...
Hi everyone
For my take on this one I sewed onto my background paper to make the spider web. It is easier to prepunch the holes in the cardstock before stitching the thread through them.
Thanks for looking :)Sarah
