Team Training for January ...

Welcome to our first edition of Team Training for 2016 brought to you this month by team member, Regina Chandler.

Each month one of our team will inspire you with a little tutorial, tip or trick to help you in your scrapbooking pursuits. 


We all have gelatos, right! So here’s how to make a custom background in the colours of your choice to suit your photos.

The secret ingredient with gelatos is H2O!

This is all you need for your background. I also used a little pink gelato on this.

Using a heavy weight white cardstock, start by ‘scribbling’ with your chosen colours roughly where you want them on the page. You can use more than one tone of a  colour together.

 The next step is to blend with baby wipes using a circular motion. Use 1 wipe per colour to avoid mixing them.  Let dry a couple of minutes before moving onto the next colour.

You then only need minimal embellishments to complete your page!

You can use this technique over and over again using different colours.

 So try it out today.  Enjoy…

Thanks Regina, you make it look so easy - everyone should try this!

Don't forget to have your entry in for our challenge this month.  Some lovely prizes on offer - one prize by vote, another completely by random draw and a guest designer spot with RAK to offer one lucky entrant.  You have until 11.55 on the final day of the month to have your submission linked.
