Hi everybody, Anna-Maria here today, and it's Saturday!!! So we start the scrappy weekend today. For the begining of this awesome free time I propose you a simple tutorial made with Lily Bee 6x6 Tiny Tablets.
I made a layout using some Lily Bee collections and washi tapes. I would like to show you how can you create an easy and very attractive background for your layouts. You can also use this technic in your albums and cards! It's so easy to make and - what is very important - you can ajust colour palette to your photos every time.
You will need a piece of white cardstock, some papers (I use Lily Bee Tiny Tablets 6x6) and masking tapes.The first step you should start in the corner. You have to cut a piece of paper and past it in the corner of the cardstock. Then you should cut a stripe from the other paper - and stick it.
You can use different papers and also masking tape. Using tape is much easier, because you don't have to cut the stripes :)When you finishe to embellishement the whole cardstock (remember you can leave some white stripes also), you have to cut it into a few pieces. They don't have to be simmilar in their width.Supplies Used: Double Dutch, Handemade, Buttercup collections
Then just past this composition into your layout, add the picture and other embellishements on your base.
The layout with a stripe area is ready.
I showed you the whole process made with pastel tones (the layout I published when we were proposed you the colour challenge on Lily Bee blog), but I also prepared the second example of using this techinic - with different palette coming from Victoria Park collection.
And don't forget about our other current contest- the Blog and Facebook Giveaway week. TONIGHT is your last night to enter, so make sure you are all signed up! You can find more information about that here. Winners will be announced here on the blog, tomorrow! :)
