49 Shades of Grey with Quick Quotes!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the 49 Shades of Grey Collection by Quick Quotes. This is a great collection of black, grey and white color tones that work perfect with the other collections by Quick Quotes.

 The inside page has a special edge and I wanted to share with you how that was done.


Instructions~
#1. Cut a half inch off two adjoining sides. Making the paper 11 1/2" X 11 1/2".
#2. Adhere to the 101 (grey polka dots) paper, leave about an inch from the edge with no adhesive.
#3. Take a water pen and run a line of water along the edge with no adhesive.
#4. Fold and bend the wet paper. Do all the edges the same way.
#5. When the edges are dry, ink for shading.

Makes for an unique paper edge and holds the ink well.


#6 Title and journal page.
#7. Add embellishments.

Products used~
Quick Quotes/ 49 Shades of Grey 102, 101.

Other~
