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

*   When using bold sections of patterned papers, using papers from the same range will help them blend and contrast more effectively.
*   Paint and sand your embellishments to help them stand out against the bold patterned paper.
*   Keeping your paint and embellishment palette confined to just a few co-ordinating colours will prevent the LO from appearing over done.
*   Twill is a great alternative to ribbon when creating a heavily distressed looking LO.
*   Create your own ‘dictionary definitions’ for the words you want.  Printing them on acetate enables them to be layered over other elements, in this instance the photo.
