Stickers and Ink

by Pamela Young | September 10, 2013

Hi everyone!  Pamela here today sharing a fun technique with you all.  Most crafters have both stickers and an ink pad in their supply stash, and that's all you need for today's technique.  I love to use my stickers as masks.  I often do this with paint or spray ink or even a sponge in ink.  But this time I put my ink pad directly on top of my stickers.  Gives it more of a dramatic, messy graphic look.  This is what I am talking about:

I laid out my stickers:


Then I applied my ink directly from pad to paper:


Then I removed the stickers.  And that's it.  Easy, right?  I then built my layout on top of this.  

Here's how my layout turned out:


It uses the fabulous Bella! Boutique School Days collection.  

Here are some close up's of my layout:




Did you see how I stitched circles around the numbers for the year?  I thought that was fun.  :)  

Another thing to try is adding your journaling in a way that it adds to the design of your page.  I wrote mine all around the bottom of the layout, but then at the top I just drew a simple line to tie it all together.  

Ok...well have a fabulous day!  Thanks for stopping in!
