2. Paint Chip
I have seen many great layouts by traditional paper scrapbookers who utilize paint chips that can be found at any store selling paints for free. What a great accent to a page for free! Traditional scrapbookers can get pretty creative with them. How creative can you get?
I am including my .psd file for you to use as a template to put in your own colors.
Here are some ideas for you in ways that you can utilize a paint chip.
1. Use it as a tag for a title. Write across the whole paint chip or write one word in each square.
2. Cut into squares and hang from a ribbon or rope as a title.
3. Punch a hole in one end, thread ribbons, and cut in the shape of a tag.
4. Cut it into pieces and position it into a square mat.
5. Cut into corner pieces around a photo.
6. Use it for journaling
7. Cut into thin strips and create a border around the entire layout.
8. Add a piece of vellum and stickers to it.
9. Use two pieces of it next to a white square to make a journal box.
10. Punch shapes into it.
11. Use them as a mat behind photos.
12. Use them to ground your layout, reaching from one edge of the layout to the other.
13. Grunge up the edges; ink up the edges; sand the edges.
14. Cut into thin strips and use to accent layout.
15. Cut into thin strips and use as borders between photos.
16. Rip/tear the paint chip.
17. Use an overlay with the paint chip
