I love cutting a page of shapes using both the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and the Art Philosophy Cartridge from Close To My Heart.
Then I have a stash of goodies to make into cards, scrap book pages, and home decor.
Such was the case with my “Hello” stash!
This post is multi-tasking as a way to communicate 8 techniques, which My Reflection Paper Packs will be retiring, and which packs will be carrying over from the beautiful Spring/Summer Idea Book to the upcoming much anticipated Fall/Winter Idea Book.
LEAVING US AT THE END OF JULY 31ST:
Technique 1: Use Alcohol Markers to doodle, fade, and create!
Later Sk8r will be retiring.
Technique 2: Stamp (hearts), doodle (“w” lines), and sponge color (Bamboo)
Claire will be retiring.
Technique 3: Outline individual letters – this was with Gold Metallic Marker.
Buzz and Bumble will be retiring.
I like the layering on the Tulle and ribbon, do you?
STAYING WITH US UNTIL THE END OF JANUARY 2014.
Technique 4: Cut letters apart and stylized individually with papers and ink. All are painted with Create-a-Shade paint, too. It would have been a good idea to do the painting BEFORE adding to card!
