Lesson Time and a tutorial

I went with happy misting and layers with this layout and added a little hand sewing to the mix. I have to confess that the sun rays didn’t turn out the way I expected but the sewing part was a real experience. I was reluctant to actually sew but was glad that I did. It was fun.

Since the thread color didn’t contrast well with the background paper, I decided to twine more thread around some cardstock to pump up the yellow hue on the page and make the sun pop a little more.

I was playing around with my punch when I realised that I could make tiny leaves. I just doodled some lines on the punched out leaves and used them on the layout. Prefect.

Since I was so happy with those leaves, I thought I would just do a quick tutorial.

Step 1: Grab a piece of pattern paper and punch out one circle. Use any of your circle or oval shaped punches.

Step 2: Insert the pieced you punched out in Step 1 back into the punch. Wiggle your paper until you get it similar to the photo above.

Step 3: Punched out the shape and you end up with two pieces like what is shown here. Just fold your leaf shape into half and draw on some lines. Then have fun with your leave embellishments in your projects.Do drop me a comment if you like the tutorial.

Catch you again,
