Freebie - Grunge : Hot and Cold Colors Kit


For Digitial Scrapbookers :

Hello Scrappers !
Thanks once again for all the sweet comments ! :)
As promised my Grunge Kit. You might think this kit is small, but there is a lot u can do with it.
I have found "Grunge" is a very edgy medium. I have actually always loved it but I have never ever scrapped with "Grunge" in Traditional paper way cause I was always scared that I will end up making a mess, but digitally even sky is NOT the limit..:).
If you have never worked with Grunge, try it, it will give u'r pages a very artistic edge. trust me !:)..
Best of all u dont need too many embellishments it will be quick easy fast scrapbooking !

Hope u give Grunge a chance. Have fun !

Closer Look at the Papers


  
  



Examples

  


For Grunge newbies : I have 2 easy tips to using Grunge :
1. easy way to brighten the Grunge Paper, layer it over a all White layer and reduce the opacity of the Grunge paper.
2. easy way to darken the Grunge Paper, layer it over a Black layer and reduce the opacity of the Grunge paper.
Same thing applies to Photos you use with the layout, if after doing a layout you think the photos are too bright just put a black layer below it and adjust the opacity of the photo layer.

I so agree with you that you don't need HUGE kits to do a layout. I find so many kits are overkill with all the items they put in them. I for one don't do a hundred layouts using one kit.

I love your grunge kit. I used to not be a fan of grunge, but I am finding I like it more and more. I love the worn look of the papers..kind of like me...worn. ROFLOL

Thanks again for all the wonderful designs you share here on your blog.

Big Hugs!
