Scrapbook Page

Hello I have a scrap booking group that meets monthly. Some times when you are scrap booking you want to showcase several images. This page is designed to do that, by organizing the images in a serial fashion it allows you to share more than one or two images with out the page becoming overwhelming! Plus you have a nice mat to surround each image. The rose red page is a little busy but if you know me one decoration is never enough!
There are two techniques that I want to tell you about. First one is spot lighting. This technique show cases an area on a stamp. I used Tres Chic background stamp and river rock paper and ink and always artichoke stampin write marker. You start by inking Tres Chic stamp with river rock ink. Then using an always artichoke stampin write marker and the brush tip color in the word or area you would like to highlight. Huff when you are done and stamp on river rock paper. Because you have used coordinating ink with the paper the always artichoke words pop!
The second Technique I want to share is not really a technique but a great way to use scraps of stamped images you have laying around to decorate these two pages. I used bits and scraps of old stamping mistakes I have.
In my Studio I always keep three boxes for scraps; one for scarp card stock, one for scrap designer series paper, and lastly a box of scrap stamping mistakes. So when I am looking for an accent piece it is great fun to pull out the box of scraps. This can be a goldmine of great stuff when decorating your scrap book pages just a little touch here and there!
