Tuesday Tip - Using up your alpha's

Hi everyone,

My tip for today is showing you how to use up all your left over alpha's.

You know what it's like when you buy alpha's and end up with random letters left over? Well here I have done a layout using some of those random letters that get left in the packet.

I got a few left over alpha's in different sizes and styles and glued to a piece of cardstock.

Then add some paint......

Then create your layout....

Add some ink or paint around the edge of your layout and I have even added some paint over top of some of the letters.  Then I created my layout.

You could even use words, shapes etc to create a different background...

Would love to see what you all create using this on your layouts.

Happy Scrapping
