Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Frugal Scrapper Tips 'n Techniques #2

I'm very excited to share this mini album and 2nd Frugal Scrapper Tips 'n Techniques segment for several reasons:

First of all, this mini ablum was made using the February kit for the TNT Tips 'n Techniques club I lead at Ever After Scrapbooks.
Secondly, I used some really awesome techniques to create this album. I shared one of the techniques with you all last week in my 1st "Frugal Scrapper Tips 'n Techniques" post. This week I will share another "frugal" technique used to create this mini album.

Thirdly, it qualifies as a "Just the Trash and my Stash" since the rubbermaid shelf liner I used is "just trash", lol. This piece of shelf liner was rescued from the trash and has been in my "stash" for about 10 years just waiting for the perfect project.

This is actually the last page in the album and best depicts this technique.

I started with a plain light aqua piece of card stock.

Using part of a Sandy Lion Laser Cut 12 x 12 diecut as a mask, I applied suede Glimmer Mist to the page.

I then took an old rubbermaid shelf liner (you know, the ones that are skid resistent and have random holes in them), applied some lgt green acrylic paint and pressed it down over the glimmer mist.

I re-applied acrylic paint, using an aqua shade this time, pressing over the previous layer.

I was very excited at the dimension the "layers" added to this page. The best part is that the shelf liner can just be cleaned off with warm water so it can be re-used for your next project.

For the link to pictures of the entire mini album, click here. You may notice that I used the rubbermaid shelf liner technique on most of the pages (some just partial impressions). It helped pull the album together and gave it a nice flow.

Once you give this technique a try, leave me a comment with a link to your project. I'd love to see it:)
