Designer Take: Jennifer and the Rub-on Technique Challenge

Inspired by the rub-ons included in the February kit, the February technique challenge is to put them to use. I asked creative team member Jennifer to share with us how she used rub-ons on a recent layout, and this is the fantastic result:

Jennifer first laid down a layer of blue mist. The contrast of the white rub-ons on the blue mist is visually appealing, especially as the mist tapers off toward the right of the page. The white rub-ons blend into the white background cardstock for an interesting, gradual effect.

I also asked Jennifer what her rub-on tool of choice was, and she said she uses her bone folder. A bone folder is a great idea – the pointed tip can be used for more detailed rub-ons, a bone folder is much easier to hold than a craft stick, and bone folder slides over the rub-on backing more easily as you are applying the rub-on.

    I love how the rubons pop off of the spray!
