Each month one of our team will inspire you with a little tutorial, tip or trick to help you in your scrapbooking pursuits.
Using your Punches and Dies in a different way by Anna Uhras
Today I'd like to challenge you to think negative :) Sometimes that can be positive, believe it or not.
This might be old news for some of you but maybe it can be a reminder then.
Mostly when we use our punches and cutting machines the small cut pieces is all we use, eh?
And so do I, and that's beautiful , BUT today I, as I said, will challenge you to turn NEGATIVE ...
Give those lovely left over darlings a chance to sparkle instead of being thrown in the trash bin.
I use them in my layering on my layouts.
I think it is a great way to give dimension without being too heavy if you see what I mean.
I will show you some of my layouts using the negative part of the paper...
Here I have used both the circles and the "holes"
Here I didn't want to cover the background work too much so this piece fitted perfectly.
On this page you can find a piece of Vellum with some "holes" of stars.
I know this isn't a revolution but I think those negative pieces of papers deserve our attention.
Sometimes they can be the feature of your entire page :)
I hope I've inspired you to think one more time before you just throw the "holes" in the bin :)
Have a scrappy day everyone!
Thanks Anna, I certainly need to stop and think before I reach for my rubbish bin. These negatives certainly are a huge positive.
