Once I get on a technique kick…I have a hard time not incorporating it into my projects or looking for other ways to use it. Today’s technique is one you’ve seen me do recently and as I did it, I knew it was gonna stick! This technique incorporates the E-Z Runner Grand using the Repositionable Dots Refill to create a unique background. Here’s my layout using and Adhesive Masking Background Technique:
If you take a close look at my background you can see that it has dots in it as I tried to recreate a beach scene with the yellow and blue but put a twist on it with the dots.

This close-up shows you the dots in more detail. Although I could have gone with a more simple mixed media background, this technique allowed me to add a little more texture. In order to create this, I ran my E-Z Runner Grand all over the background. Then I used a sponge and distress oxides to apply distress oxide ink over the top. Following that, I removed the adhesive by rubbing on it. Essentially I used the Adhesive as a mask, while I applied the ink.
Another couple of handy adhesives on this layout were the E-Z Runner Micro Refillable Dispense and the 3D Foam Squares. I used the Micro Refill to add adhesive to the back of my happy words. This is a smaller adhesive at only 1/8″ in height making this adhesive perfect for little die cut pieces like that!
