I have a couple of Gallery layouts to share with you today using the brand new Shimelle collection from American Crafts. This brand new collection arrived on my doorstep last week and I was so excited that I dove right in!
First day of School
How to: I used a waterbrush to lightly paint my background paper with light blue watercolor paint. Next I used the American Crafts Knockouts triangle punch 1.5" and 2" to punch out pieces of pattern paper from a 6x6 Shimelle paper pad.
This was my first experiment with brush script. I'm kind of a neat freak about my handwriting so it was a little hard for me to let go with this.
How to: I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a large heart on my background paper, then cut strips of paper from the Shimelle collection to fill it. After it was filled, I used a sewing machine to stitch around the outside of the heart and then painted the outline and title before adding embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my monthly gallery layouts. I will be back again tomorrow for the first American Crafts 2014-2015 blog hop!
