Continuing with my Thanksgiving book, this is the "A" page. I'm enjoying putting this book together more than anything I've done in a while.
I like how the background turned out looking like very old wallpaper, so here's how I did it. I started with a piece of inexpensive yellow scrapbook paper. There was a faint woodgrain pattern on it, but that's not really important. I stamped Layers of Color Fleur Heart stamp all over using VersaFine sepia ink. I created the pattern by repeating the stamp vertically down the page. For the next row I moved the stamp down about halfway to make another vertical row. Then I went back up to the original position for the third row and continued this pattern until the entire paper was covered. I dabbed little bits of Ranger Distressed Crackle Paint in Walnut Stain here and there, and then finally rubbed some Distress Inks (Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo) on with a sponge.
