How to create your own custom background using a toilet roll tube and mists! :)


Classical conditioning

Hello friends! :) Today I want to share a short tutorial on how I created the background for this layout  inspired by Sketchy Thursdays- using a toilet roll tube and some mists. :)


Step 1: Cut little "rings" from the toilet roll tube.


Step 2: Arrange the "rings" on base cardstock. Spray various mist colours.


Step 3: Remove "rings" for your very own custom background. :)



So doable, eh? :)

Supplies: Sassafras and Prima patterned paper, Heid Swapp chipboard, Sharpies, buttons, popsicle stick, baker's twine, American Crafts badge, Gauche Alchemy embellishments, doiley, transparency, ribbon and trim.
