My Sunday Tutorial for Frosted Designs

It was my turn to do a tutorial for Frosted Designs 'Show me Sunday' today. I shared a very simple technique but one that I use on almost all of my pages
Here it is :-

"Hi everyone, Sarah here with a very simple tutorial for you today. I only just got back from a big overseas trip and haven't got myself together yet :) Still, this is a simple technique that I use all the time on my pages. I am going to show you how to use wooden or chipboard shapes as masks to add co-ordinating details to your projects.

First assemble your products - this is real simple some spray ink, background paper or cardstock and your choice of wooden or chipboard shape.

Position your shapes where you would like them to be on your background paper.

Spray generously with the spray ink of your choice (I especially like to use white spray ink over a darker coloured background paper with this technique)

Remove the wooden shape - you can use this on you page too for a perfectly co-ordinating accent or put it aside for another project.

Complete your page around your masked shape and enjoy. I love this effect as it adds subtle interest and detail to your page without adding any bulk. You also get twice the value for money from your wooden shapes :)"
