Cocoa&Blush – Newborn Photography Props – When In Doubt, Rough It Up! – Tip Tuesday

No Comments

Tip Tuesday

Wanna know my secret to making things pretty?

Easy. Rough it up! ๐Ÿ˜‰

From lace to yarn, to burlap to fabrics (even flowers!) .. sometimes you just need to rough it up a little bit.

So here is a quick example for you. Antique lace is beautiful to begin with, but on many of my pieces it looks much better when I rip it up & rough it up a bit. Simple and effective! ๐Ÿ™‚





So when in doubt, rough it up! Go give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚
