Create a Textured Background Using Adhesive Sheets

Are you looking for a fun and fresh way to create a background?  Or just a different approach to get those creative juices flowing? It’s Christine joining you today with a boy layout that showcases a background created with Adhesive Sheets and Embossing Powder!

How to Create a Textured Background using Adhesive Sheets from Scrapbook Adheisives by 3L and Embossing Powder

I love to play with mixed media BUT sometimes it’s fun to go a different route when you are making a background.  In this case I knew I wanted a lot of splotchy white in my background.  But I didn’t want anything wet.  This is where Adhesive Sheets came into play for my background.  I used them in combination with embossing powder to get the job done. I made a process video that will walk you thru exactly how I created the background.

As you can see the combination makes for a bold and textured look that is very different from a wet mixed media approach.

Using opaque embossing powder made it really stand out but there are so many options out there to experiment with.  If you want something more subtle you can definitely play around and find out what works for you!

I also incorporated the Adhesive Sheets as I used my metal die cut machine to cut out small stars for embellishments. I used the sheets in a very traditional manner in this case – using them to back my embellishments. Additionally I opted to pop some stars up and the 3D Foam Circles were the perfect candidate for that work!
