Hello there friends!
It´s with pleasure that I share my post today since I´m a guest designer for the current challenge "Staying in the Background" on The Funkie Junkie Botique Blog. Cec is the hostress and this is what she says:
My challenge to you is to create your own background and use it in a shabby chic or vintage project - no pre-printed patterned paper this time. You can create the background in any number of ways and it can be simple or intricate. Using embossing folders. stencils, dies, stamps, washi tape, paints, inks or a gel press are just a few ideas. Make sure you give a brief description of how you created your background in your post.
As I said, this is a simple technique that always gives good results and should not be forgotten when so many new products are launched, I think.
