Seasonal Inspirations at SOC E:SPIRE
Trying to find a reason for that season of crafting? Get a cup of coffee or tea, put your feet up, and enjoy the newest issue of SOC E:SPIRE.
My inspiration painting this background was the ocean. The sound of the ocean ... the look of the ocean ... it enhances everything it touches .. even our moods when we hear it.
Page 26 shows you how to create a fabulous background to add to your crafting projects. It's so simple - I'd love to see you try. And don't just limit yourselves to using your painted elements for traditional paper crafting - think outside the box!! ... think DIGITAL.
Digital seems to be all the rage ... but like traditional scrapbooking, template use can sometimes give the "same ol' same ol'" look and feel to various projects. Painting your elements, sanning them and incoporating them into your digital layouts is a way to make your work standout.
TIP: In this age of digital templates and limited use angel policies, you can always be assured that painting your own elements and backgrounds make you and your project stand out as being truly unique.
