Locker Room || Misted Background and Lots of Scraps

Good morning, everyone!  Kat popping in today to share a fun, super easy background technique with you and then discuss a couple of ways I use my scraps.

First, a picture of my layout:

To create this background all you need is your favorite mist, a plastic shopping bag and your cardstock.  Lay your plastic bag out on a work surface, spray your mist all over it, and then lay your cardstock down on top of the bag.  Repeat as many times as necessary to get the background you like.  Seriously – it’s that easy.  I am super partial to my white cardstock backgrounds, but this is a fun technique that I like to use when I’m craving a bit of color on my background, but am too scared to go full on colored-cardstock/patterned paper!

Next, let’s talk about those scraps.  I always have a ton of random rectangles of patterned paper left over when I’ve used most of a kit.  I never know quite what to do with them all.  For this layout, I decided to just layer them all to create a mat for my photos.  One of the ways to add interest to some of your scraps is to use a punch and layer the negatives along with the other scraps.  I used a circle punch on this layout, but anything would look good – stars, butterflies, the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping in to see my layout today.  If you use this background technique on a layout, I’d love for you to leave a link so we can see it!
