Julie’s been posting such pretty pages with this technique, I just had to come check it out. 🙂 Hope to give it a try soon! Thanks for the fun idea and the detailed step-by-step, Karen!
Yes, she has! There have been so many gorgeous pages! I’ll look forward to seeing yours too, Stacia!
WARNING! This is highly addictive! I can’t wait to create a layout with one of my new plaids!
Yes, it certainly is! I’m glad you are having fun with the tutorial!
I love the tutorial however I’m not doing something right as I can’t get it to work. I would like to send you a couple of screen shot. I don’t have your email though. I tried it with your photo and twice with one of mine. Neither worked.
Thanks, Nancy. We’ve connected, and you’ve worked this out now. I’m so glad! I hope you enjoy this technique.
