At any rate - I would like to share with you my first "Earth Friendly Friday" Authentique project. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a Starbucks addiction. I generally bring my own travel mug with me, but when I forget, I make sure to save the coffee sleeves.
They have a great texture - I really like the small-scale corrugation for using on scrapbook layouts. It's a very boy-friendly colour too, and turns out it goes perfectly with the Authentique "Curiosity" collection.
The coffee sleeve adds some depth, so I added Helmar Zap-dots to some of the sticker Elements to make them stand out more. Adding height to the Elements I want to emphasize, makes the cardboard visually recede a bit (you don't want it to be the first thing you see).
The thick Authentique papers really stand up to distressing, so I like to take advantage of that.
Having a variety of sizes in the sticker elements makes it easy to create embellishment clusters. I slipped in a little more of the coffee sleeve here, too.
