Notice the curvy square chipboard? I pulled off the backing for that chipboard and saved it. You'll notice in thebeach layout, I laid the scrap backing down on my page and used it as a mask before misting. I did this first before I placed my photos. It adds a little dimension to the plain background and it was FREE. You can do this same thing with chipboard alphabets-save the negative space and they become stencils.
Come back next week for a giveaway!
