I kicked off December with a day of designing which left me covered in inks and paints. It was loads of fun and what I love to do so it was a perfect start to the album as well. I was really 'in the zone' and couldn't go to bed until the layout was finished so while my photos were printing I got on with my DD entry as well - before I knew it, it was 1am (ooops!!).
For those of you who took my 'Countdown to Christmas' masterclass I have a folder in the gallery on the forum at www.totalpapercrafts.forumotion.co.uk for you to upload your pages as you complete them. Drop in to see what others have created!
The second tag in Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas is up on his blog today and its full of more techniques....
I have some of the kraft resist paper pads in stock and might be tempted to have a play when I find some time but then again you could probably create a similar effect with stamps and clear embossing powder. The whitewash effect can be created with diluted white acrylic too.
