Super quick post here as spring has sprung and I need to go a’raking!
Now I am a lazy girl and plus I like to “push the envelope” on the creative thing so though my sister might think I cheated a bit… well:
Um, I did not leave myself quite enough time to sit and piece little bits together and I know my Cameo is just waiting like my trusty white steed by my side so I employed it to do my “mosaic” part.
I created a “mosaic” pattern using elongated soft edged rectangles and then had my machine cut DOLLAR STORE mac-tack (sticky shelf liner) which I’d picked up a whole roll of for $2. I liked the masculine pattern on it.
Once it was cut, I used a discarded credit card to hold the little bits down while I carefully lifted off the “frame” around the bits. Then I used some transfer tacky sheet and moved the patterned bits to my card.
I DID Mod-Podge this flower though which I cut from the same designer paper as the background. I built the center of the blossom in layers, the first being a circle I cut out of screen - right, the sort from your windows, works great! Next a circle from plain white cardstock, topped with a button and then a bow of crochet thread.
The designer paper was a scrap, the stamp from American Crafts JARED collection.Challenge,Podge,Technique,Super,Nina,Sister,Judy,Enter,caption,girl,envelope,piece,Cameo,mosaic,machine,DOLLAR,shelf,liner,Once,card,sheet,paper,background,American,collection,layers,creations
