so ive never done a tutorial here,,,, but what the heck ~ lets get er done!!! i wanted to show you how i created the rubber band back ground for my *finding nemo* layout i created for the scrap outside the box challenge.
start ~ rubber bands. i used some that i had at the house,, and of course theyre colored!!! thats how i roll baby!!!
i took my rubber bands and dipped them into my mod podge that i had poured out into a bowl that i used for all my paints and mod podging projects,,,,
the i placed them onto my paper. im using an 8 1/2 X 11 layout here. laying them out as i please, knowing that some {or most} WILL be covered by my photo or my papers,,, thats okay, i still cover the entire area as i please to make sure that mt photo doesnt lay crooked,,,, done with laying out the rubber bands,,, i let the mod podge dry for a bit,,,
once dry, i apply tattered angels glimmer mist, just to make it shine baby!!!
alright ~ alright the above {and below} photo kinda shows that *i* didnt wait till it was totally dry,,, but i recommend that you *do* wait for the mod podge to dry before applying glimmer mist. if worse comes to worse, mod podge *does* dry clear,,, right??
and there you have it!!! but again ~ i totally encourage you to check out what the
other design team girlys did with their rubber band layouts ~ totally rad!!!

WHOA! that's really really neat that you shared this! I love seeing the inside scoop on how girls put their layouts together. :]

Girlie ,,, you are so clever. I would have done something totally different (and more time consuming) to get them to stay down. Tricky, tricky!! And you are the Glimmer Mist Goddess!!
