On to the layout…. I thought I would do something a bit different and I have used ‘And Then’ cut file on my layout but instead of using the actual file, I have used the positive left over Ampersands to create a mixed media background using texture paste. It is a really simple technique background to achieve, firstly, just paint on some texture paste or similar gel medium would work. I then used this is a glue and added the Ampersands randomly overlapping to create some texture and interest. I love the white on white look as it creates interest without too much clutter on the page.
