The Triumphant Return of Toile!

A first attempt with this glorious new set from the Summer Mini! The Bravo Burgundy layer was color embossed with Bravo Burgundy ink in the new Square Lattice Textured Impressions folder (also fabulous!).  The results using the Square Lattice folder are very much like the look of that non-skid rubber shelf "paper" that you can buy -- it's got a really nice texture!

The Smooch Sprays are also really cool.  They spray heavier than I expected, i.e. the coverage was really uniform, rather than a more random spatter.  They also put out more than I thought.  I still like the results and am sure that I'll get the hang of it soon!

Beautiful, Lisa. Both of those things were on my preorder, too. Can't wait to get them (but it'll be next week, since I'm on the East Coast and didn't expedite). Thanks for the inspiration.
