I had an idea to do a different trend for today that went well with these pictures......and then it evolved into something else - does that happen to you too? I used a mix of papers from Simple Stories Awesome collection, Cosmo Crickets Tea for Two and a little October Afternoon Farmhouse as well.
On my blog browsing there are a number of scrapbookers that have perfected tearing beautiful papers up and making them look gorgeous. It isn't something I have really played with, and it did take me a while to tear one of my favourite sheets from Simple Stories (I love newsprint but that is a whole other trend!). It is really easy to do, and you can layer up all sorts of off cuts of papers behind the tear and I added a little lace too.
On the rule of odd numbers I went for 3 tears about my page - it is just a straight tear into the page.
You can then ink the edges, or just roll them over as is.
