Pretty Paper Party - Prompt 05

Todays prompt was titled "Rough around the edges". I have to admit I'm a bit of a tidy scrapbooker and I don't really do anything with out really thinking it through.  But since watching one of Shimelle's videos where she uses paint to make a border and bring the page together I find myself trying to find space on my layouts to paint on it.  So for this layout I added a green painted border.  I worked out that design first then did the border on another piece of kraft.  When the paint had dried I moved it all over but I wasn't convinced I'd chosen the right colour.  But after walking away and coming back to it, it didn't look to bad!

The picture was taken in the Savernake Forest.  We had been for the day out and decided to have sausage sandwiches out in the country.  Kian had recently been to cub camp and was keen to show us how it was done.

The 'graph' paper is from the new Amy Tangerine line.  The red spots are from Cosmo Crickets Social Club and the Thickers are by American Crafts and have a lovely flocked texture.

  1. This is a lovely take on the prompt, rather than just sanding or crumpling some paper. The colours are fab too!
