How To...

This past week I spent some time just hopping around the Blogger World.
I came upon 2 tutorials that I knew I just had to try.

I thought I would share the links with you, just in case you had not discovered them yet.

The first one, is for the beautiful flowers seen in this  lo of my eldest Granddaughter.
(Yes, I know I spelled Nicaragua wrong : ) !

You may found the tutorial here courtesy of "Scrap Factory" .
There is a language translator there in case you need it.

The next is for the overly grunge and crumpled paper you will find here in the lo of my youngest Grand Daughter.

I have seen this technique on other layouts and loved the result, just not sure of a good way to go about achieving it.
 I found this tutorial to be very helpful.
 Thanks to "Scraps of Reflection" for posting this tutorial !

I also wanted to share my own tip with you today.
For my chipboard in the lo above, I used White Puffy Paint and a few drops of Alcohol Ink to achieve the desired color and texture I wanted to add to my chipboard.
No worries about adding the extra liquid to your Puffy Paint.
Works just fine!
