April Team Training ...

Welcome to our latest edition of Team Training brought to you this month by Rebecca Daly.

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

Hello everyone!!! Hope you are having a fabulous day!!! It’s Rebecca and today I have a fun tutorial for you. I am also looking for new ways to make new backgrounds. Then one day I was playing in my craft room and I was finding that my original idea for a background was too heavy/bold so I decided to try something new and I love it!!! I used a die-cut, blending tool and ink to create a very fun background.

 Here is a step-by-step:

1)     I cut my image from the silhouette (here I used clouds)

2)     Using my blending ink  (here I used cats eye ink by clearsnap but any ink and blending tool will work)

3)     Start at the top and work from left to right

4)     Move the ink over your die cut onto your paper in circular motions

5)     Continue until you are happy

6)     I flipped my die cut so I would get different cloud patterns as I moved down my paper

7)     Voila new background
Thank you for visiting us, hope you can play along and link your project for your chance to win a great prize this month.
