How we hold on...



Hello all - just a quick reminder here today...


I promised that there'd be a step-by-step of how I created my trio of tags What We Hold On To over at eclectic Paperie this week, and today's the day. 

Mainly I was just experimenting with the Distress Paints to see what they were capable of, and I was so happy with how the backgrounds turned out, I ended up using them straight away!

If you're interested in how those backgrounds came to be, then you can pop over to eP for a (photo-heavy!) process post.  I'd love to know what you make of it...  

Have a great week everybody!

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

I am glad you did a tutorial, I really need to get the paint as they make gorgeous backgrounds. I love what you did and they turned out perfectly. I do like how the background stamp is more visible on them. Great work and thanks for the tutorial.
