It's the fourth and final week of Fall 2009 Stamp Camp at Two Peas.
I am finishing up Fall Stamp Camp with a stamped layout featuring Background Stamping. This week I'm sharing how to create your own "patterned papers" using background stamps and inks to create a quick and easy layout. You could use these same techniques for card making as well but we've had numerous requests to show that stamping isn't just for card making thus the layout this week!

I also incorporated quite a bit of digital elements for this hybrid layout. I really can't believe I just typed that last sentence. I have been so intimidated by digital anything (other than a few digital brushes over photos) that I thought I could never do it but after being so inspired by both Jen Gallacher & Mary MacAskill I decided to give it a try. And I LOVE it. Granted, I only did pretty basic, easy stuff (the notebook paper background, the curled photo frames over my photos, the pumpkin patch word art and journaling) but I downloaded several more digikits to play with for upcoming assignments! Fun!
Have a great week everyone and happy stamping...
