Studio J Techniques
- Stitching ~ Place cropped and resized stitching over My Stickease®.
- Faux Washi Tape ~ I love that we carry Washi tape now! To add the same look to your Studio J layouts, simply crop a text box into the size of a piece of tape, rotate it slightly, and place it on top of the seam you are “taping” together. Don’t for get that you can always add some real Washi tape to your printed layouts. I have it on good authority that we are getting more colors of Washi tape in the new Idea Book!
- Paper Strips ~ Use text boxes to create the look of strips of paper running off the edges of your layout. My challenge to you is to use text boxes in Studio J just like you would with regular paper in classic scrapbooking. You can add texture, distressing, layers, and more. The only thing I haven’t figured out how to do is tear the paper, but CTMH has given us several Studio J templates with torn paper, so all is well!
