I just never thought to use them in a layout!
TOTAL lack of imagination!!!
Must correct ASAP!!
Here ya go:
|So my LOVE of neon and washi is in full effect here. I used a while bunch of techniques I have learned from other crafters- SoapHouseMama and Miae to be specific. More on that below.|
Materials: Studio Calico Classic Calico paper, washi tape from Hambly, Smash and MT, vellum title from DCWV, Awesome word bubble from A Life Handmade on Big Cartel, Smash date stamp, gel pens from Sakura Martha Stewart multi butterfly punch and pin from American Crafts.
My husband absolutely FREAKS when he sees me work.
He gets all itchy looking at the crooked lines, paint splatters all over the work table or the sewing machine wrestling (mostly because I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SEW.)
Some detail shots:
|I bought this random travel themed DCWV pack at TJ Maxx|
and I really like this vellum material. Some of the phrases
are a bit cheesy but this one has a great font and size.
Love that word bubble! I really wish I could afford a Silhouette!
|Silver gel pen for the journaling. The butterfly was |
colored using pastels I bought at the dime store.
|Ok so here is where I credit my scrappy friends. |
SoaphouseMama (Ashli Oliver) gets credit for the stacked lines. I see this motif in her
work and I just like how it adds visual interest without distracting from the main design.
Miae of Making Scrap Up gets credit for the wheels because I see her doodle these all
over the place!!! Using the sewing machine was time consuming but I love the effect.
The hanging ends were something I saw a french blogger do and it just made my jaw
drop. I don't remember who it was (it was before I learned about Pinterest)
but if you recognize who I'm talking about lemme know ok?
Just slap some paper onto other paper, dash that paint on, take your favorite stamp and go hog wild- whatever.
If you hate the final result it's ok- go back to your regular work style!
But maybe you'll discover a new technique.
|NEW PHOTO SEGMENT!! |
What I learned from my two year old TODAY:
A fool and her washi are soon parted or
YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH WASHI.
GRATUITOUS TODDLER SHOT!!!!!
|Cute right? She pulled the ugliest 30 minute tantrum when it was time to go.|
