We Are All Made of Stories – Day 5

Welcome to the fifth and final day of our collaboration with Neat and Tangled. We have enjoyed combining forces this week to share inspiration from our October kit, Mix Tape, which features this fantastic Neat and Tangled exclusive stamp:

Wrapping up projects from the Scrapbook Circle creative team is Jamie, with this amazing layout:

Jamie used the sentiment stamp to create her own patterned paper background! Stamped repeatedly with resist ink, the words appeared when Jamie added color. What a perfect technique for a stamp like this!

    I’ve tried to make my own paper but it hasn’t been a success.
    I need to play with it more – to get it lined up correctly.
    Love the page. It’s beautiful.
    thanks for sharing.

    ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS layout Jamie!!!
    LOVE how you have used this great sentiment to CREATE your own patterned paper, it looks lovely, especially against the bold stripes and pretty design with your journaling panel on vellum in the middle!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing 🙂

    I love the layout – the stamped background is fantastic! I’d love to try that technique but first I have to find out what resist ink is….
