Tuesday's Tips

For today's tip we have some tips from PFOP members regarding SANDING! I have never tried it before, but now must give it a go!

First this is what Camille said:
I have recently rediscovered using sandpaper or a metal file to trim the edges of my paper when doing acrylic albums and chipboard. I love the finished look.
Secondly Kristi added:
You can also use it effectively on tins.
And third, Cindy offered:
Sandpaper can also be folded and used directly on photos to create a distress frame.

To me, this sounds like an inexpensive technique that can quickly add dimension and texture to our projects. Please add any additional tips you might like to share that will help us with sanding.

Happy Scrapping & thanks girls!!

For a period of time I couldn't stop sanding everything. I guess it's time to restart that habit. :)
