Reading the Scrap365 magazine also led me to this lovely book called 'Art of Layers' by Ronda Palazzari that gives scrapbookers ideas on more imaginative pages using a mix of layers.
The book suggests different techniques to add more layering to layouts, therefore making them more interesting by using fabric, spray inks and gesso. Some of these techniques I have tried and I love using acrylic paints as backgrounds on layouts as it gives a lovely texture to the page.
I have succumbed and ordered the book as I am always looking for new ideas and inspiration from different sources. Look out in the future for more layouts using different layers using a variety of textures!
