Embellish Scrapbook Layouts Color Challenge

Recently, I’ve discovered a simple but wonderful technique for scrapbook backgrounds, the bubble wrap technique (that I found here), and I’ve been waiting for a chance to implement it in practice.  And the latest Embellish challenge seemed to be perfect for that:

So to make the polka dot background, I took a piece of bubble wrap, covered it in ink (use an ink pad or re-inker), and tapped it onto the cardstock. It’s the simplest, cheapest, and greatest technique ever. Love it.

And by adding the square layout, I tried to recreate the mosaic effect that you get looking at the lobby sign in the Embellish poster.


  1. Love the square layout and the orange in the the color combo! So pretty! Thanks for joining Embellish.

  2. Thanks, Ashley! The idea to add some orange into the palette was also taken from your inspirational picture.

  3. another reason to save that bubble wrap, love it!

  4. Thank you, Jenna!

  5. Great layout, and great use of that bubble wrap technique!
    Way to be "hot"!

  6. Thanks, Angela, and congrats on your win!
