Today I'd like to share some easy ways to add texture and depth to your pages.


This close up shows a punched border .. but then add a mat with great colour to pop through for layers and depth. Ink the edges for even more depth and shadowing.


This section shows a piece of paper that I embossed then inked to give both texture, depth but a great vintage look too.


 This close up shows more texture and depth by adding layers.using some stencils and inking them. Also note the mat behind the rubon title with even more inking on the edges. Slip a doily way back  behind with all the great design and texturing too.


Not only did we texture and ink the paper in this section we added a punched border for more design, depth and texure. Both the upper and lower slanted borders adds more dementions to the page also especially with the matting and colour.


There is nothing more elegant than a beautiful cluster of flowers and accents.  All 3d looking with chipboard coloured using copic markers, a metal key tied up with timeless twine, flowers and even beaded floral. Now add a multi layers beaded border to base the photo.


Now for the fun part. Making your very own varigated butterfly accent using matching paper from the layout. It  is so easy to co-ordinate to your projects of all kinds... and butterflies are perfect accent for so many themes and creative projects.


Here is the printable sheet of instructions to be printed on 8.5x 11" paper.



After watching the short easy You tube tutorial .. you will be able to make the varigated butterfly to add to any of your projects using products your already have in your stash that co-ordinate with your project.


Here is the close up of the accented section with the butterfly and I also added a timeless twine flight trail. What a great clustered section to add to any project.
I really enjoyed this today and hope to see you again soon.

Thank you for visiting
