Paper Tearing Technique
December's Creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook is full of beautiful winter papers from Crate Paper. I had so much fun working with the papers and the pieces - there are so many pieces - in this kit. This month I wanted to share a technique I used on several of my layouts. I hope you like it! If you've never torn paper for a layout you are missing out - especially when you are creating winter layouts. It adds a fun look and it is super easy to do. Amazingly, I've talked to several people who are unsure of how to do it and make it look good. First, let me say it is TORN paper so it really can't be wrong - right? I personally tear paper in short sections. Depending on the look I want to achieve I either tear the paper towards me or away. Check out the differences:
