Thanks for popping in.
Hahaha! Yeah I know what you thought when you read
What a Bust! Got you looking though, eh...
Here’s a quick and simple Groovi parching project,
which i started but didn’t finish on yesterday’s TV show,
so thought i would go back over it a little more slowly!
Slowly being the operative word today.
I simply don’t ping back like I used to after a day at the studios.
Using the lovely new Fashion Borders designed by clever Mel.
you can buy the bundle, or individually.
Used one of the very few dies I possess to make a little frame.
Parchment cuts like butter in an embossing machine.
Well, let me qualify that: my E-Bosser!
Used the nested square plate to create a frame around 3 sides,
but not the base.
Decided which chick and where exactly,
aligning the neckline on the frame line.
Make a little dot,
and bring in the frame to where the neck begins.
The borders sit inside the Art-Deco Border Plate Mate.
Beautiful font on that one...
Right. Trace out the hat, but only to the ribbon.
Swop out the plates and use the floral circle to add flowers to the hat.
Floral circle: great plate for fills.
Once you’ve added the flowers, you can finish the hat.
Using an eraser, remove the blue from the face and neck.
We can do this because the parchment is only flooded with colour on one side.
Colour in with Distress Markers
and bring out the flower with whitework .
No. 3 and No. 4 tool from the Starter Kit.
Later on this month, we will start looking at the Pergamano tools
in more depth....
Make a simple pattern around the edge with the straight grid.
I found the little circles on the Starter Kit Mate.
Layer up on a piece of our Designer papers from the Sweet Dreams Collection.
And then on the same coloured blue parchment.
Dies are great if you are still getting to grips with the picot cutting,
or you are pushed for time.
As am I this evening.
So I will love you and leave you, as they say,
because I have to stop and rest the ol’ neck.
Love and hugs,
PS If you are wondering why my blog ranking has plummeted from No. 2 to No 7 in the space of a week, so am I!
But never mind.
What’s more important? Hits to the blog and adverts?
Or a creative, safe community?
I’ll go with the latter.
