Today I get to share a ‘think technique’ with you. I have to admit, at first I was a bit stumped at what technique I would share seeing as I don’t think of myself as a technique scrapper. I think a lot of us say that, but we really are. What do you do to make a layout yours? I bet there are techniques that you do without even thinking about it. I gathered the supplies I thought I would use from the True Love Collection…and let them lead me.
The technique that I found myself using was adding machine stitching to a patterned paper to create dimension and added detail. If you look closely you can see the stitching lines on the woodgrain background sheet. I let the design lead the stitching so the lines are a bit wavy, just like the background.
This is something that is really easy to do, only takes a couple minutes, and makes the layout have a little something extra.
One other fun little technique that I also used was overlaying a chipboard decorative item on top of a printed one. On the die cut in the middle there is actually and printed arrow under the chipboard one. I cut the chipboard arrow and adhered it to add some dimension to that element.
Give these simple techniques a try!
