Hello Friends! alexandra here.Welcome to another edition of scrapbooking with Penny Black Inc. products. This week-end, I’d like to share some fun ways to create your own patterned paper with a die and mist. I have a complete tutorial showing you how to use a die to make a stencil and then use both the negative and positive shapes with mist to create some cool backgrounds. I then used one of these strips of papers to make a 8″scrapbook layout for my “2013 in 52 Page”album.

I also used the Dots** Die to add another layer on my page…

**Creative Dies used for this week-end’s project // Creative Dies utilisés pour ce projet: Leaves #51-002 and Dots #51-009

I hope you’ll join me at art scrap & more

Thank You! Happy Bastille Day! // Merci! Bon 14 juillet!

    Love the positive, negative idea with the dies. Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for sharing.

    It’s the greens version that catches my eye – especially when you combine it with the layout &I love the way you have used the Dots die-cut to tie in with the notepaper, the eye is led beautifully down.

      Thank You dear Paula!
      I think it does look better on a colored piece of paper, especially for a summer lay-out.
