For this month's layouts I actually designed my pages without pictures. I don't usually do that but I was at a crop and didn't have photos, so I just decided to give it a try. I really love the colors of the Oxford line by Basic Grey~ have to say it is some of my favorite color combinations! I wanted to give the paper an "aged/distressed" look so I went to my new favorite technique.
My latest go to technique is paint splattering~ I think I enjoy just flinging the paint/ink around! I use a bunch of different ways to splatter paint, but one of my favorites is to use an eyedropper- it works well for the bigger splotches. If I want smaller splotches I will dip the handle of a paint brush is the paint/ink and do it that way. I like the aged/distressed look it gives the paper.
