I was super pleased with this layout....'cos I tried recycling something and it worked out pretty darn cool. Super easy too!
Happy "Being Frugal" Accident:
I made the background by cutting out a leftover portion of the 'negative' of the Tim Holtz sticker sheet (i.e. the 'holes' that are left behind after you take out all the stickers). I pasted it on the black cardstock, drybrushed with cream paint over it and got those little 'boxes' on.
Then, I stamped in paint over it with my all-time favourite Purple Onion vintage script stamp and then added bits of paper, stickers and stuff.
Quickest layout ever!
