Good morning! Happy Memorial Day for our US friends and for all of us that are back to work...Happy Monday! Let it be the start of a great week! Today we have designer Sarah Webb joining us with a challenge ~ are you up for it?
"Sometimes, no matter how hard you look, the ‘right’ paper just doesn’t exist (or it’s going to take a couple of weeks to find it’s way to you). For this week’s Designer Challenge I wanted to challenge you to create your own background paper using embossing powder.
Find a stamp or two you love and put them to work. I choose a background stamp by Kaisercraft (grid) and a stamp by Studio Calico (star). I started with the grid stamp and heat embossed clear powder. I then added the stars and topped them with metallic embossing powder. Here’s the page once the embossing is done:
Yes, the page curled a little. Don’t worry, the page flattened down once I added the rest of my elements. Here’s the resulting page once I created over the background design:
I hope this inspires you to pull out your stamps and embossing powder to add an extra layer to your pages. I am looking forward to seeing what you create so be sure to link your layout in the comment section below!" -Sarah Webb
Before we leave you today, we came across a free Photoshop course from Jessica Sprague and thought you might be interested! More information here.
See you tomorrow!
