Sand Paper Embossing

I normally wouldn't post again so soon, but I wanted to share this cool technique I learned from a fellow scrapper, hisgirlre. She showed me how you can take a sheet of pattern paper and place it over a slightly raised sticker, then use sandpaper on the pattern paper to get this neat distressed look. Take a look at the two examples below.
You really must try this. It really jazzes up a page without overdoing it. It's very subtle and cool.
Here is the entire finished layout. These were photos I took while on our vacation to Yellowstone National Park. I used this technique and journaled all the way around the edges of the layout. This was made with the My Creative Scrapbook July Kit. I saved it just for these vacation photos.
