I had the most fun with this project. When you receive a pack of practically white paper in the mail (or in your shopping bag) it can be a little daunting.I’ll admit, I stared at the papers for a while after I ripped into the package. So many possibilities!!

The great thing is this Heid Swapp Color Magic Paper Pack has TWO sheets of each pattern so there is room for a little play and alot of excitement! Our Tombow Dual Brush Pens are blendable and they are perfect for Heidi Swapp’s resist style papers. Since the pens are water-based, the ink beads up on the embossed “resist” sections of paper, allowing for blending with the next color really easily.

Here I colored each row of scallops a darker shade of yellow and then green. Then I used the Blending Pen to blend the droplets on the resist sections of the paper with the adjacent rows of scallops to create a ombre, variegated effect.

After coloring the paper, I added my photo and embellishments. I used Tombow Mono Power Bond Adhesive Runner to hold all the pieces down–from plastic to chipboard to paper, this tacky tape is perfect for bulky embellishments.

Finally, I cut the centers from the Day Glow Photo Corners to make them into chevron arrows pointing to my photo.
