Happy Tuesday!! Today I have a page layout to share using the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Collection!! When it comes to scrapbooking I have never been good at going about it in a chronological way!! I had been hanging on to this photograph since 2008 because the right paper never presented its self to me until now lol!!
The technique I would like to share is on the last picture. It is the cracked glass technique! I used UTEE to achieve the look above!! The first thing I did was cut out the section of pattern paper that I wanted to use. I then covered in versamark and heat embossed it using the UTEE. I started on one side by heating underneath the paper first then moved to the top. What I achieved by doing this was one section hat was smooth (heating underneath) and a section that looks bumpy (heating on top blows some of the UTEE off). I then placed this piece of paper into my freezer for a couple of minutes. As soon as I took it out I was able to bend it and marvelous little cracks appeared!! To highlight the cracks I then used the "Venetian Lace" graphic 45 ink!!
This technique works great to make a plain piece of pattern paper become something much more!! Thank you for stopping by and Have a great day!!
