3 Ink your paper and cardstock, this helps to blend the papers and cardstock and gives a great feel to the finished layout
4 Sand the edges of your photo if appropriate. I use a nail shaper available at chemists or cosmetic outlets.
5 Write your journaling, I have used a jenni-bowlin-journalling-card ( I have a small notebook that I write down little anecdotes, milestones or special moments that I also date so I don’t forget them).
7 Apply rub ons to your photo and paper, I have used scenic route playtime rub ons here. Note how I have applied three sets of the rubons in a triangle, this is known as a visual triangle which helps to lead the eye around the page.
My finished layout using the above techniques is shown below, I hope you find these tips and hints useful and I hope to see your layouts with 8 by 12 photos in the gallery soon.
