MAGAZINE MADNESS MONDAY- BACKGROUND PAPER

















Welcome to our first Monday Magazine Madness! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I did! I got to see my husband and I went to my first workshop, it was great! So for todays magazine madness, I was inspired to make a cool background paper. I used distress inks and a coffee stain stamp which I had already, so it cost me nothing whereas the single sheet of paper goes for over .85 a sheet. Great deal and gorgeous paper!

Be creative! I can't wait to see what you come up with, so go grab all those magazines you have lying around and be inspired!

THIS WEEKS TIP: USE ANY BRAND HAND SANITIZER TO CLEAN STAINED ACRYLIC BLOCKS. TAKE A SOFT CLOTH OR PAPER TOWEL, SQUIRT SOME SANITIZER ON IT, AND WIPE THE INK OFF THE BLOCKS. YOU CAN WASH IN SOAP AND WATER AFTER IF YOU WANT, BUT THIS IS NOT NECESSARY. THIS REMOVES INK THAT HAS BEEN THERE FOR DAYS, MONTHS, ETC... EVEN STAYZ ON INKS!

BE CREATIVE!
