Hello again! Today I am going to share with you on how you can create your own background by using these cute sticky pads.
First, position each sticky pads to fill up at least half the cardstock. Basically you start positioning them right at the middle and slowly filling the gap at the sides. If the pad is long for the edge, all you have to do is to trim it to fit.
Then you will cover the sticky pads with a vellum. I wanted to achieve a soft & subtle look for the background and the vellum overlay accomplishes this! Next, I splattered gold & white mist onto the layout.
Once the mist is dried, embellish the layout with photo, vellum, ephemera & chipboard shapes. And you are done!
