Sanding Pictures!

Today I have another one of my 6x6 scrapbook pages using the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts chipboard.  Plus another technique I love to use, sanding the edges of my pictures!

Irresistible Spray
Spritz a 6x6 sheet of paper from the Authentique Durable 6x6 paper pad  with Irresistible Spray.
Randomly add 3 strips of Washi tape to the page. 
 Sand the picture with an emery board or sand paper.  Mat with black paper using Double Sided Tape, then adhere to the page.





  1. Sanding the edges of photos is an interesting technique. I like how the washi tape brings out the ground color in your photo. Very nice.

  2. I've never tried sanding a photograph before - I guess I'll have to dig up some old ones that I don't care about to practice on! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Good idea to start with old photos... you may want to use an emery board to start or a small strip of sand paper. That way you are limited on how much of the photo you will sand off! You will love it once you try it!

  3. I've never sanded before, something new to try! this is a lovely piece. the washi is a perfect accent. xo

    1. You should give it a try... it's is a great way to distress pictures!

  4. This is a WOW piece of Art. The sandign adds so much, (or should I say removes?) takes it to a new level!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
