Scrapping - Heaven Sent

This baby page layout can easily be adapted to suit almost any photos.
On this page we used a "bleach" stamping technique which is a fun and easy way to use your foam stamps.
Paint or dip your stamp using normal household bleach, immediately stamp onto your cardstock. You will notice the "bleached"  effect it creates. Be sure to rinse your stamps immediately after use  
       We used this technique on 5 different size cirlces which we used for parts of our mattting and even as embellishement on its own.

Here we matted our paper onto a piece of cardstock and added fibre,buttons,words and a tag to create our own embellishment.

Note how we used one of our circles partially under our photo mat with ribbon under the circle - the stamped image shows up nicely to give almost an antique look.

We used a few different ribbons which are glued quite flat onto the page and then added buttons,washer,flower and the heart which is attached again to one of our circles.
I dont know about you but I much prefer using bleach in this way than what it's originally meant for.
