      I think we all have a scrappy nemesis – that thing that makes us scream “Gahhhhhhhhh” as we mess up once again because we never seem to be able to get it right.
      What do you wish you could do better?

        For me, it’s random stamping. I watch our designers’ video tutorials and they make it look so easy, stamping here and there at random and ending up with a perfect background, but try as I do, I just cannot seem to get my page to look the way I want.

          I am getting better at it, but it is the use of micro beads and mica flakes. I see people use them and it looks great. I do it and it just looks like a pile of mush.

            I’ve never got quite brave enough to try using the micro beads,like Kim I see other pople use it and it looks so easy but when I’ve tried it it just doesn’t look great.

              Kim, Steph – I hear you!!! I’ve gotten better with the beads (after months and months of frustration!), but the flakes are still beyond me. I think it’s because they’re just too big. I guess I should take them out again and see if I can do better. It’s always a shame when something just sits there unused.

                For me I think it’s watercolor backgrounds on a layout.

                  Watercolor background is something that I’ve never tried, Jan. Maybe I should!!!
