Since we are having some problems with our forum, I know there are those of you who are wanting some new challenges...so I will post one here on the blog.
Tuesday Technique...Fussy Cutting!!
My friend Lisa loves to fussy cut and I recently have started to really like to do it too. I never thought I would have the patience for it. In fact, my other challenge this month required a bit of it too....not much but a little.
Well, today I am challenging you to do even more. Take some busy paper that you just can’t find a use for and cut out an element or two from it. In my layout I cut out a ton of flowers. I curled the edges to make them stand out and added other embellishments to finish them off. I started with a very basic sketch from Smitha from her blog Smilingcolors.com.
Actually this was only part of a sketch. If you check out her blog, she gives a day by day sketch. Each day she adds to the previous day’s sketch. This is where I picked it up so it looks a bit different
from her final sketch!!
Here is a link to her blog if you would like to see more:
My layout is Be Strong.
I used the March Bo Bunny Alora Kit from Little Red Scrapbook kit club. I used less matting than the sketch called for as I really wanted the background paper to show.
I hope you get a chance to do this sketch challenge....Have fun with you scissors!!
