Background Blenders 3 - Scratched

"At the Beach" digital scrapbooking layout by Brandy Murry
When I created the Cottage Rose Collection, I was playing around with mixing patterns with a scratched or sanded look. That is how these new digital scrapbooking paper templates came to be. You all know I love me some blenders and these are a fun addition to your scrapbooking stash of goodies.

Papers in this sample use the "Blessed Be Collection"
You can use these paper templates for all kinds of things. As in the layout at the top of Jess & Lilly at the beach, I used them to add a cool edge to the page. Here are some more samples of how you can use ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Background Blenders 3 - Scratched below .

In this layout I used one of the papers to clip Lilly smiley face to. Then I changed the blending mode of the Paper Template to "Soft Light" resulting in a photos blended into the paper. It's subtle, but a nice effect.

You can also use the templates to add an area for journaling over your background paper or photo as in this layout.

Other ways can be to mix patterns together as I did in the Cottage Rose Collection. If you are a designer and would like to use these templates to create your own papers and backgrounds, you can get the Commercial Use Version of this set HERE
