Designer Tip: This collage kit comes with everything you will need to make a wonderful photo keepsake. I used the surface of a black ink pad to color the canvas surface. After it dried I layered burlap, torn newsprint, metallic gold paper and canvas to create the background. Mat a 4”x6” photo with black cardstock, leaving 1/8” borders and glue gold die-cut photo corners to the photo and glue the photo to the right side of the canvas, as shown. Glue a length of burlap ribbon and white/gold twine across the canvas, 1 ¼” from the bottom edge and wrap the ends around the back and glue in place. Use the stylus and pads to apply ink to the edges of the die-cuts and burlap flower petals. Use the surface of the ink pad to color the wood button surfaces and thread with twine.
