This paper is designed as a Halloween paper but here I've used it for my son's school album. I also added in some "bonus material" hidden behind the main photo with a pull out. A great way to add extra photos in when you don't have the room on the main portion of the page.
The last page is a close up showing the distressing I've added to the layout. I mixed Cocoa re-inker and Pearl paint and then using a stipple brush painted it on the pieces and main base page. It adds a lot of shine. I also painted the banners in the upper right corner and the tag in the lower right corner.
