Ten Top Tips Thursday

I have added a cool javascript to this blog where it shows a new "quick tip" everyday. So now I have decided as a regular feature to this blog to add 10 new top tips every Thursday. Here is my first lot of quick tips. If you have any tips that you would like to share with everyone then send me an email and I will add it to the next Top Tips Thursday post.
  1. Make photo corners by stitching ribbon to a page.
  2. Fabric is a great alternative when you can't find patterned paper to suit a layout. Just remember to iron the fabric first!
  3. Tone bright colour's down by placing them on a neutral background.
  4. Use buttons to create a border around a photo.
  5. Highlight the main photo with a fabric frame filled with wadding.
  6. Tie buttons to a page with cotton tie in a knot.
  7. Use lace to make photo corners for a softer touch.
  8. Create weathered frames with patterned paper - score and highlight the frame with ink, finish with watered down gold acrylic paint.
  9. Create mini books on your layouts to hold journalling
  10. Paint edges of photos as an alternative to matting them.
