MMM Mid-week Motivation - Using Patterned Papers.
Good morning every one. Today's Mid-week motivation is brought to us by Suzanne - take a look
"Sorry all but I have made a little mistake - I was in such a hurry prior to my holidays getting all my pieces done I omitted to take midway/instruction photos so hope you will forgive me.
Everyone has patterned papers in their stash - some we have had a while (and no longer like) or others that are highly patterned (and we are not sure how to use them). The Graphic 45 steampunk papers are a fine example of this with lots of elements on them and if you were to use a whole page flat then it may be "too much".
By cutting into the paper and extracting elements the paper can go a long way.
My canvas is covered with a 12x12 page - the leftovers have been used i.e. the butterflies and flying clock were cut out separately from the reverse. I have also overstamped onto the patterned paper - this is also another good way of "changing" patterned paper as is spritzing and stencilling.
Next week the mid week motivation will be back to its usual professional standards but I hope you have enjoyed looking at my canvas......."
Next week will see the start of a brand new theme set for for us by DT member Caz. This also means that we will be picking our September monthly winner - take a look at the prize you could be winning
