So funny that my last post was all about how the Critque Class at Masterful Scrapbook Design helped me improve my scrapbooking embellishment skills because today's Get It Scrapped Blog Post is all about Go To Embellishing Approaches with Favorite Embellishment Techniques.
Despite lots of embellishments on this page in the form of stickers and vellum and patterned paper, there aren't a lot of dimenstional embellishments - that is what I've been focusing on lately: adding dimensional embellishments to my patterned paper strip type layouts; but this page was made just after the new year so almost 2 months ago now. Adding some brads and bling could be done even now on this layout, but I'm not in the habit of going back to tweak layouts that I consider done.
