Hi everyone!  I’m soooo excited to be a new Paper Temptress design team member!  My name is Lynn Barwald and I love, love, love the most awesome paper sold at Paper Temptress online.  I have been involved in the paper arts industry for about 10 years, teaching scrapbooking and card making classes and I recently opened my online store, selling my class kits, where I have started to incorporate Paper Temptress papers because I love them so much.  There is nothing I love more than paper and ink.  OH… except my fabulous hubby, Bob, and my 2 most adorable and loving kitties, Maxi and Mr. Wrigley.

I tend to do weird and different things to paper, so I hope you’ll enjoy my work.  My goal is to step out of the box.  I am a “leftover” hippy from the sixties, live in tie dye (I even have a tie dye formal dress!) and I wear Patchouli.

When I saw the Paper Temptress Vellum package with all those yummy colors, I was in love yet again!  The Laser Silver Lustre is delicious too!  Oh!  It loves the ink I added to the sides!  I can tell because it looks so happy!

All I did was tear a whole bunch of different vellum colors to make my page.  The really super cool thing about this colored vellum is that when you layer it, you end up with all new colors!  The vellum comes in sheets of 8.5″x11″, but I easily used it on my 12″x12″ scrapbook layout, as you can see.  I then inked the edges of that gorgeous Laser Silver Lustre and used a paper distressing tool to tear it up.  No project is complete without ink and tearing in my humble opinion.  A neat technique I used was on my photo I learned from my sweet friend Kristie Taylor, also a design team member.  I took a black Sharpie marker and outlined the photo.  It’s easy to do and gives the look of another mat behind the photo.  To do this, lay your photo on a scrap piece of paper and run the marker down the edge, leaving 1/2 of the line on your picture and the other 1/2 of the line on the scrap paper.  It always comes out clean (except when you slip and leave a big black line on your photo!  Oh.. that’s never happened to me before though!  lol).

So, what do you think?
Until next time,
Lynn B
