Adding Some Pop to Your Page!!

How could you not love this Papa Collection from Fancy Pants? It has such a great distressed masculine look. Its perfect for layouts featuring Dads. (Don't forget Fathers Day is only a month and half away!)

How about trying these two techniques to add more texture and pop to your pages? The first is by painting chipboard with multi colors. After painting chipboard a basic color try adding a second contrasting color in streaks, splatters or just on the edge of your shape. This will add texture to that plain surface.

The second way to "make your pages pop" is by adding dimension. The paper curls under the stars were easy to make! Simply wrap a strip of paper tightly around a pencil. The paper will hold the curl, and then you can adhere it to your layout.

Give it a try! We would love to see your work at AllyScraps !
