Today's tip is one for all of us who have that little pile of backgrounds and pattern paper that is just...a bit too bright...not quite what we need for a certain project...or just one we really can't quite like!!
One of the great things about vellum is it's opacity. Whilst it's translucent it has a softening defusing effect on what is underneath or behind it.
The So Lovely Vellum I'm using is a coloured vellum and I wondered if it would have the same effect so I had a play and...it does!!
I used Melon Mambo, a bright hot pink, Grapefruit Grove, a bright orange and Pineapple Punch a strong bright yellow, to create a background. I blended the colours from pink to orange to yellow.
I then used a piece of Purple Posy vellum cut slightly larger to cover the background. I attatched the vellum behind the embellishment so that it didn't show.
I do hope that you'll dig out those not quite right backgrounds/ paper and try overlaying it with vellum to ensure you make use of all your stash 😁
