Tips & Tricks: Make Rain with Brads and Stitching

by Joannie McBride

Use Brads and Stitching to Make Fabulous Rain Puddles

Kim Watson created a cool textured background on her layout by stitching and adding a variety of brads to resemble falling rain. Notice how this technique adds a 3-D feel to the layout. If stitching isn't for you, don't worry. Simply use a white gel pen to draw lines or use a dimensional glaze pen with a fine tip to apply the glaze directly to your layout for a nice raised finish.
