TIPsy Tuesday - Brushed Craft Ink and Vellum

To create the white distressing on this page's chipboard, I brushed on a little white craft ink using a course paintbrush.  White craft ink takes a particularly long time to dry so be sure to allow plenty of time.  It only took one or two drops of white craft ink.  A little goes a long way.

Project Notes:
  • Before distressing, I painted the chipboard with blue acrylic paint.
  • The scallop border is cut from another piece of designer paper in this collection.  It was already curved and I just tilted it the way I wanted it to go.
Extra tip:

If you are using vellum for your journaling and it doesn't show up enough on a busy background, just tuck another piece of vellum underneath.  Two layers of vellum will still give you the light slightly see through look and you can read the journaling better.

The photo in this layout was very over-exposed so you can't even see the ocean in the background.  It was unintentional yet I really like how it looked.  The focus is on Nai Nai and that is all that is important.

Thanks for visiting this week!
