So I’ve been busy working on a project for dear hubby for a gaming/fantasy convention we’ll be a vendor at later this month. I also finished a layout that was actually for a couple challenges, but I didn’t finish in time 😦 I’m still going to post it here for you guys:)
So this layout was based on a couple old challenges. One challenge was to use the color combination of red, brown and black (this was also during February). Another was to use your punches. Well, I only have one punch. The main problem for me is storage. I’d love to have a Cricut, but no space 😦
Anyway, here’s my layout: “Die Hard Love”
Supplies:Patterned paper – BasicGrey, DCWV Tattered Time & Rock Star; Stamps – Studio G (arrow, zigzag lines), Amy Tangerine Photo Op Roller Date stamp; Stickers – Pebbles, Inc.(love, together) and other; Acrylic paint in red, black, brown; Chipboard – Paper Crush (tag, stars), other (die); Fabric tape – 7Gypsies; rub-on alphas; Avery tag; Ink – Tim Holtz Distress Ink Rusty Hinge, Studio G – black pigment ink; Punch – Fiskars Postage Stamp Border Punch
As for the project for my hubby, Charles, I’ve made a display piece to advertise his books. I’ve got one done, one in process. Here’s the one for Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero
I attempted a gesso texture technique that didn’t work as well as I hoped. So, from the same UK magazine, I tried a different technique with tissue paper. Basically, you glue objects to your base (cardstock, grayboard, etc.). You then glue tissue paper over everything, gently pushing the tissue down around the objects. Then you paint to your heart’s content.
Questions and comments welcome!
