When I went to Ranger U last year to get certified to teach how to use Ranger products, it was with a very specific goal: I wanted more ideas for how to adapt these fun techniques for everyday scrapbooking in a modern mainstream style.
We usually see them used on tags, in vintage projects, on cards, or in art journals. We don’t see them used in scrapbooking all that often, which is too bad, since they’re so much fun! Plus…
- When you have leftovers and nothing to match with them, you can use techniques to make something to match your leftover scrapbook supplies.
- When you have a story you want to tell and none of your papers (or current trends) will do the trick, you can make something that will.
- You can make something totally unique!
Of all the technique-oriented products, I recommend Ranger for scrapbookers. Ranger has the best ones with the highest quality.
Here are 36 scrapbook pages with backgrounds I made from technique-based products such as Distress Inks and Stains, Perfect Pearls, spray mists, paint, stamps, stencils, and masks…
Stains, Inks, Masks, and Stamps
I have step-by-step video tutorials for many of these pages in the archives for Paperclipping Members. I’ll list them below their layouts. For the one above, Members can watch Paperclipping 201 – Organic Background Techniques.

See how Distress Inks and paints and other products don’t need to be limited to vintage tags and art journals? You can make modern, bright, colorful scrapbook pages with these super fun techniques and supplies. Hopefully from these 36 scrapbook layouts you found a few ideas!
