Crafty Techniques: Ombré Effect on a Budget

  What is Ombré? Ombré: having colors or tones that shade into each other usually graduated from light to dark. As most of you know, the Ombré trend is really catching on. I totally understand why. I see it everywhere. At any hair salon It is the most requested style. I’ve seen it at the fabric store, tons of fabrics with an Ombré effect are on the shelves. This new craze is even hitting the Scrapbooking/crafting world. I recently saw Ombré ink pads. How cool is that? I’ve created this simple technique using the Ombré effect which can be used not only on paper but on fabric, wood or any other surface that can be painted. I am constantly in search of budget friendly projects. This effect can be created with just few bucks worth of acrylic paint or fabric paint if that is your material of choice. I hope you will all try this technique. I sure can’t wait to create a layout with this background. Check out my process video: Thanks for stopping by.Please be sure to follow me for notifications of fun stuff to come.  XOXO~ Katty



Hello friends,

I wanted to share the layout I made with this fun Ombré background that I created. Unfortunately I do not have a process  video for this layout. It was made at an NSD(National Scrapbooking Day) Crop I attended earlier this month. I do however have a Layout share video where I share all of the layouts that I completed at that crop and I give a brief explanation of each one. This page was so much fun to make. I am documenting a concert I attended with my stepdaughter last year. We had a great time and I really wanted to document that night. Here is the link to the Layout share video:

XOXO~ Katty
