It came up again this weekend, and I’m always surprised when it does. I was asked “how do you deal with having such dimensional pages when you go to put them in albums?” and this always surprises me because my pages are almost never more dimensional than a brad or button! That said, making a flat page with a dimensional look is always possible too – and today I’m going to show you how:
First off – here are some tips:
- Use a mistable/color magic paper (or white cardstock!) and use mists or inks and blend them in to get some color depth.
- Layer papers
- use rub-ons, stickers, and stamp images onto paper
The trick is to layer flat stuff, so you get depth without adding thickness. I had such fun with this page. I started with new Tim Holtz summer distress colors and I colored a piece of Heidi Swapp’s Color Magic paper (don’t know how this works? check out my video on Color Magic here on YouTube)
Does that look like a boring flat page to you? No way! Supplies used:
I’m looking at that supply list and chuckling to myself – those are ALL total favorite “May” supplies. No wonder I had fun and liked how it turned out!! I’m telling you these summer distress colors are a MUST have. LOVE that brightness!
They are popping up in stores everywhere, making it easier to find + buy them. Here’s an enabling tip… don’t forget that over at Inspiration Emporium if you use the code campscrap you can save 10% off an order! [here’s a link to the inks there!] Oh and let us not forget my beloved Color Magic paper. It lets me play with inks and mists, blend stuff, play with my crafting, and just really add so much depth without adding bulk. LOVE that paper.
I hope you enjoyed today’s layout, and that you have a fabulous Monday!
