I've been scrapbooking with the new arty, eclectic and wonderfully colourful Studio2Mers papers now available in the shop.
For this page I've used a sheet from the inky-stencilled-looking 'Constellation' range:
For those of you who love the look and feel of inky, painty, messy techniques ... but who don't want to get your fingers dirty then these papers are for you!
You might not be able to tell from the photographs but I haven't added any ink or paint at all to the Studio2Mers backing paper. Everything you see - the stencilled effects - the paint-stamped effects - the spritzed effects ... they're all printed on the paper already, all I needed to do was add embellishments and a photo.
And here's what else I added ...
- A border punched sheet of Collections Elements Noir et Creme 6x6 paper:
- A cluster of embellishments including an inked doily, a die-cut heart, a vintage milk bottle top; baker's twine:
- Wording, appropriate to the photo of flowers in my garden, cut from one of the Vintage Comics in stock;
- Similarly, I tore an image out of the same vintage comic and slipped that behind my photo;
All of the Studio2Mers papers are also double-sided and you can see images of both sides of each sheet when you click on each individual design on the website. Seeing as how all of the inky, painty messiness had already been done for you ... the hardest part in using them is deciding which side to go for.
Unless of course you take the advice DT member Jan has often passed on to us all: 'if in doubt ... buy both'!
Here's to crafting with Studio2Mers and to clean-hands!
