Adding Corrugated Paper to your projects...

Hey, friends!  Missy here with you today.  My latest project focuses on some really neat corrugated paper from Fancy Pants.  I don't know if you've gotten your hands on any of it, but there are five different colors of this in the store HERE.  I love mixed media and altering paper with paint, inks and gelatos, so I chose to play with a white sheet.  The texture on this is just awesome.

For this project, I used some of the corrugated paper as a background element.  I love torn edges, so I tore a big strip off and just simply added watercolor to it.  It was easy to paint, easy to adhere and my sewing machine stitched through it really easily.  It's not super thick, so it's easily bent and manipulated.  Very versatile!  

This layout was created for this week's Throwback Thursday challenge.  I challenged members to use a collection or papers at least two years old, use photos at least two years old and use a stencil at least two years old.  I used the My Girl line from American Crafts (2012), photos from 2011 and a stencil I've had a few years as well.  I used a small amount of gesso and my finger to create the white circles in the background and then went over them with gelatos.  Of all the utensils I have, my fingers tend to work the best :)

The corrugated paper is so great for texture and layering...I really enjoyed playing with it.  I also love die cuts and patterned papers.  And pie charts!  A great way to add lots of patterns to your page in small doses.

One more close up of the textures going on here.  I've been on a thread kick for so long, and I just love adding it to my projects.

You can check out the corrugated paper in the store HERE....I'll be featuring it in my upcoming projects as well.  

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

Missy :)
