Just Us Girls #243 - Technique

Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop Winner: Lynn Hildebrand contact Emma at Heartfelt Creations for the prize.


This week Sharyn has chosen an oldie but goodie technique -- shaving cream background.  There is a video HERE if you want to see how this is done.  I'll be honest the first time I tried this technique [about 5 years ago] I bombed.  It was so bad, I threw my attempts away and never tried it again.  Well, I am happy to say I re-tried for our challenge and SUCCESS!!

Very cool background I think!
I got another Hello.  This one is from Echo Park Designer Dies.  Go figure right? I had no idea Echo Park had anything but paper!  I love the smaller size.  I used Tim Holtz Rosette Flower die for my flower.

Do you want to try this technique?  Now is the perfect time!  Pop on over to Just Us Girls, check out what the Team did with it, and then, play along!  We can't wait to see what your background looks like!



Thanks for stopping by~
