Technique Tuesday

Today I'm sharing not really a "technique" but a way to make the most of some of your scrapbook embellishments included in this month's kit! Those wooden phrases and shapes are pretty cool all on their own but it's amazing how you can change them up by simply adding a bit of some of your patterned paper scraps behind them!

Simply take your wooden shape and find some patterned paper that you want to back it with and adhere using your favorite adhesive that will work with both wood and paper. I love my Scotch brand 2-way glue!

I don't worry about it getting the paper the right size right off the bat...I stick it on the back and trim it up afterwards.

Looks pretty good like this...but I wanted to add something extra.

Some word stickers were perfect as something added...you could also journal right in this space as well.

Here is another sample of where I used this little technique on the wooden phrases on another layout...

Let me know if you have tried this or link up a project where you did this so I can check it out!
