IT460 – Ripples
3 Tips for Using Templates
Today the Design Team have collated 3 helpful Tips for using Templates in your crafting…
Tip #1 – Using Inks
‘Barefoot Welcome’ ~ by Renee Aslette
Firstly, using Inks through your template is a great way to create a small, controlled pattern. In this layout, Renee has inked her Template to create a background for her clusters of embellishments.

Tip #2 – Using Mists
“Sun and Sand” Layout By ~ Alicia McNamara
Secondly, using Mists through your template can create a real “watery” effect. Alicia has used the Template to decorate the background page in her layout and it looks similar to the ripples in the water at the pool or at the beach. In comparison to using inks, you have less control over the end result when using Mists.

Tip #3 – Use Modeling Paste and Water Colours
“Happy Birthday ” Card By ~ Donna Espiritu
Thirdly, Donna used modeling paste and watercolours to add interesting texture to her card and envelope. It’s a nice way to personalize any cards.
