Add spray ink to your scrapbook layouts

Happy Saturday, Paper Crafters! It's time for another Drill with S.W.A.T! This week we have a great sketch from our very own, Bev Code.

In addition to the sketch, we challenge you to use twine on your project! One lucky participant will receive a $10 gift certificate to 3 Scrappy Boys... Just link up your project by September 28th.

Friendship Scrapbook Layout (via shezigzags.blogspot.com)

I had this photo from a baseball game with dear friends this summer that just needed to be scrapped. I matted the photo with white cardstock and wrapped white twine around the bottom three times. I tied the twine together behind the photo and let the curly ends hang loose. 

Add twine and brads to layouts

Before adhering any of the layers, I added ink splatters to the background in place of the circle element on the sketch. After adhering everything down, it really needed an element there with more weight to it. Therefore, I took a colored pencil and my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter and created a fun half circle on the page.
