This obviously isn't the best photo but I really wanted to share it. I'll try to take a better photo when I get back from Cool Crops Warwick. My layout looked really plain when I initially put it together so I decided to use some texture paste on it, it was a challenge for our Just Scrappin' crop. Armed with a stencil, a spatula and some texture paste, I went to town and love how it came out.
As you can see from this second pic, it's the imperfect circles that make it look so cool. The paste can be applied very thinly and takes very little time to dry. I will have to try this technique with colored paste (just add ink or distress paint) or even some of Heidi Swapp's really cool metallic paste!
