A little bit of Correboard ...

As a lover of Art Journalling and little mixed media projects I am often looking for different materials I can use as backgrounds. Recently I decided to have a play with Scrapware's Correboard as my starting page to build on - and I was quite happy with the results!

I started by tearing the Correboard (which comes as a 12" x 12" sheet) to the size I wanted to work with. Don't be too careful when you tear it - part of the fun is letting it tear indiscriminately, showing parts of the grey substrate underneath. For extra texture and depth, I tore sections of the white covering layer off in parts as well - followed by a smooshing (very technical term) of cream acrylic paint in sections, just using my finger to avoid a brushed, neat look.

I have then layered pieces of printed fabric, cheesecloth, lace paper and stamped images - securing it all together by running it through my sewing machine. Yes - you can sew through Correboard, with a denim needle in your machine it is a breeze. I think the machine stitching gives another dimension to the texture, but if you don't have a machine you could hand stitch or even staple the different elements on top for another look again.

I've used Unity Stamps on the second page along with Scraptivate's German Scrap wings and a new Scrapware product .......

How about a little giveaway? Leave a comment and tell us what new Scrapware product you spotted on this page and you could win a little bundle of Scrapware goodies from me!

I have a few more things to share, so I shall be back very soon!
Happy Scrapware-ing ...
