In this case, all I want is for a technique to go right!
So typically on Tuesdays I try to share helpful little tips and techniques for enhancing your scrapbooking endeavors. What I don't usually share is the epic fail moments that come along in the process of developing these techniques. So in the spirit of "everything that can go wrong, did go wrong" I thought I'd share a little behind the scenes info on the making of this particular layout.
First up, the list numbers.
Lesson learned: Colobox metallic pigment inks never dry when applied to Grungeboard.
Second, inky fingerprints
Saving your layout solution: Use a paper towel to rub the ink and blend it into the background papers. i actually ended up "finger painting" on my layout to work additional ink splotches into the layout so it would look intentional. It's a good thing that Basic Grey papers are grungy!
So anyway, if you find a few mishaps occur as you work along, there are always ways to still salvage the layout!
Leave a comment and share what layout mishaps have you encountered and how you "saved" the layout.
