March team training ...

Welcome to our latest edition of Team Training brought to you this month by Phillis Walrath.

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

Color and texture backgrounds by Phillis Walrath

Today I am sharing a way to make your background have color and texture. 

I started with a pizza sized box, a piece of bubble wrap, and a spray ink.
I put the bubble wrap inside the box and sprayed it with the ink.
Then I put my paper on top of the bubble wrap and pushed down to let the ink "stamp" on my paper.
This is what it looked like.
I moved the paper and then "stamped it" again on the bubble wrap.
Once the ink was dry I added washi tape strips near the side of each edge.
Then your back ground is done.

Once I added my photo, embellishments, string, and journaling my final Page looks like this:
If you don't have any bubble wrap you probably have some other textured material that you can use to spray the ink on.  I am sure wrinkled up foil is will work.  I always put my paper into some kind of box before I spray it.  This helps to keep the ink from spraying all over my scrap room.

I hope you will have some fun with spray ink and bubble wrap soon!

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 to offer one lucky entrant.
