Safari Adventure Mini Album

By Glenys Vidal

#G45Tip: Create a focal point on your paper projects by adding multiple layers of 3D Foam Adhesive or cardboard.  “For the cover I wanted the focus to be the gorgeous image of the tiger, so even though I already mounted all my elements on chipboard, I padded the tiger with three layers to make him pop.” ~Glenys

Love every Graphic 45 paper collection. This set is perfect for any vacation or travel themed project. My tip is to vary the texture of the items in a project for more dimension, eg. matte recedes and gloss seems to pop out.
