Using up your stash with tips & Techniques - By Alison Callcott

Today Alison Callcott has designed a beautiful layout of a forum friend and using up her stash. Alz has included some tips and techniques that she used on this layout..

Perfect Moment
*   Crate Paper Blue Hill Collection
*   Fancy Pants DTC Creative Cards Notecard Journaling Prompts
*   ScrapFX Wordlets – Moments
*   Collections Elements B&W Letter Tiles - Medium
*   Green Tara flowers
*   Prima Got Daisies flowers 

*   Prima Artful Collage flowers 
*   Prima Voila die cut art strips (white)
*   Prima Say It In Studs
*   Kaiser Pearls – Bliss and Champagne
*   Making Memories metal brads
*   FolkArt Papier Glass Finish – 1764 Antique
*   Inkssentials Glossy Accents




Tips/Techniques
*   If the colours or papers you want to work with for a particular photo don’t actually match your photo, print it in black or white or sepia.  Printing this photo in sepia enabled me to scrap it with lovely, warm, coppery tones.


*   Applying Glossy Accents (or Dimensional Magic) to raw chipboard helps to draw attention to the chipboard without it overpowering the LO.


*   Lightly sanding the edges of your patterned papers and photo can give your LO a lovely rustic look.


*   Don’t forget your bling!  The tiniest bits of bling can turn something ‘okay’ into something really special.


*   When working with Prima bling swirls (in this case the copper studs) don’t forget that you can alter the shape of the swirl by gently manipulating the swirl or by cutting it where needed.

  



Thankyou Alz for this gorgeous layout and tips and techniques.


hope your all have a wonderful day
