I'm quitting scrapbooking with a 'sand' tutorial


My last layout before I call it quits...


I love this photo of my aunt and her sons at the water theme park in Malacca.
I just have to use the lovely Seaside retreat papers from Websters pages for this!
Perfect for the photo!

The 'sand' is achieved by applying rangers sticklers in lemon on the area I want to cover (in a random manner) and pouring rangers embossing powder in white over it.
You do not need to heat it.
Just leave the mixture to dry for 10 to 15 minutes and you get this effect!
It even feels like sand!! Do give it a try!

As for why I am quitting scrapbooking,
I've reasons I feel uncomfortable sharing.
The rest of you scrappers, press on! :)











I got you!
Scrapbooking is the last thing I'll quit in my life!
Happy April's Fool Day! :)

I really REALLY like how you've created the sand. And thank you so so much for the lovely gift. I'm definitely using some of those scrappy goodies onto my next layout.

Now, you keep scrapping coz this plc is one of my 'inspiration corner'. I am counting on you for some serious scrappy mojo!
