Trimcraft Scrapbook Feature April

My latest Scrapbook tutorial is up on the Trimcraft website, this month we take a look at the basics of using mixed media on your projects. The link to the article is below.

This photo was taken at the Stratford Butterfly farm which is located near the River Avon, Its a beautiful walk and i never get tired of photographing the butterflies.

Stratford is such a scenic town and there plenty of places to photograph.

Here are a few of my favourite photos and i often use them on my layouts. I took these in natural light using the Macro setting, which looks like a flower.

Here are a few detailed photographs of my layout. I mostly layered different types of flowers together. I love to combine different materials to build up texture.


i spritzed yellow-green DecoArt misters on to white flowers to get a variety of colours.

Now i will share a technique with you.

1) apply the texture paste at random to the page. There are a lot of different ones so experiment or make your own.

2) unscrew the cap on the misting spray and drop ink onto the page. The texture paste helps it run down as its smooth.

3) lift the page slightly to allow ink to run down the page.

Thank you for visiting and please comment and let me know is this tutorial helped you.
