After admiring all kinds of tags made using mixed media, I decided to see if I could replicate the feel using digital papers. I chose Miss Daisy, a We Are 3 Collection. Using GIMP, I created three tags with three coordinated sheets of paper. I then used the eraser to randomly erase sections of the top two layers. I got exactly what I wanted. It may look like a single paper pattern to you (which was my goal) - but if you look carefully, it moves from a striped pattern at the top to a dotted pattern in the middle to a floral pattern at the bottom.
This is a 5-1/4" X 3" tag. I designed it for the SALSA tag swap - theme is Inspire Me.
This weekend is our local SALSA group - we have three swaps each month. I fell in love with this new paper collection from We Are 3 - Woodland Delight. I used a Music Flourish for the SALSA theme Tra La La La La. I used word art from Drehi. Here's my completed card.
My new favorite hobby is vinyl. My hubby seems to be impressed with my work, too - asking me to make signs now. This sign is for his pain management doctor. I still have lots to learn - first time working with 651. With everything I've read, did not expect my vinyl to be glossy when placing my order. Need more research, I guess. Over all, though, pleased with the final outcome other than not choosing my colors well. These colors best matched my printout - but I guess canvas and glossy vinyl look differently than ink on paper. LOL!
Today I have a fun layout using digital papers from We Are 3 - Nature Blends and and Burlap Beach. I'm really happy with this layout for my wedding album. At our wedding, we surprised everyone with taking them on a train ride to the ceremony. Since I was in hiding on the train, I couldn't watch everyone's faces as they learned they were taking this trip and boarding the train - so I treasure these pictures that show the excitement before the trip. This was one of those layouts that the entire time I was making it, just not really sure where I was going - but when finished, it's now one of my favorite layouts.
I like the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers - only first discovered when I was Featured myself.
I cased a layout made by FS552 because I wanted to make a layout with as many pictures as possible. I used We Are 3's Vintage Carnival digital paper collection. I am working on my grandson's 4th scrapbook - my how time flies!
I've been keeping busy in my scrap room - but with vinyl, book binding, and scrapbooking rather than cards. So I thought I'd made a quick and easy card for a couple challenges - Tuesday Morning Sketch #420 and Cute Card Thursday #494 (Autumn).
The papers are from We Are 3's Orange Retro Collection. The flower is Festival (Shabby Princess). The sentiment is from the We Are 3 Autumn Sentiments. Here's the Sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketch.
I used this week's Featured Stamper from Splitcoast Stampers for inspiration for my cards. I used a variety of papers from We Are 3 Collections - Pastel Burlap, Inspirational, and Once Upon a Time - and House images from Pretty Grafik Design. Threw in a little Ideaology from Tim Holtz as well. I made these cards to give to my neighbor who is moving away this week.
Today's card features digital papers from We Are 3. All the papers come from the Summer Butterflies Collection. the decorative lace is cut from one of the collection's patterns. The digital sentiment is printed on the striped paper the same time the paper is printed - making it a clean image. I then added a bow and a butterfly.
I'd love to see what you've been working on lately, so stop by We Are 3's Facebook Page and share anything that uses products from We Are 3!
