Hi peas -

I moved 2 years ago and I have just now been able to unpack all of my scrapping goodies and set up my room. It's HEAVEN and so long in coming, but I am also finding that I am totally lost when it comes to some of the new techniques and trends. I hope that you will all afford me some patience as I "get my groove back" and get up to speed. I have tons of questions.

Wooden embellishments? I see them everywhere and have heard women gushing over them in my local scrapbook store, but I have yet to see how to really use them. Are they acid free? Do you paint them, or use them raw? What is the benefit?

THANK YOU! I'm sure there are more questions to come...

You can use them raw, paint them, Stickles them, ink them or what ever you want.

The benefit is the dimension and they're cute.

Hi! Here is a couple of links to my blog that show how I use wood embellishments and different things you can do with them.

They are not acid-free, if that is a make or break for you. I don't worry about it. I tend to use them raw, but there are so many great ways to color them, as the ladies above have posted. I have my eye on these little beauties in the store . Welcome back to scrapping!
