Circle Artist Challenge
Welcome to the Club Scrap artist team challenge! Thanks for joining us today. If you've arrived here from Donna's blog you're in the right spot. If you'd like to start from the beginning please wander over to Club Scrap to see what Karen's created for you.
Can you believe we're celebrating Club Scrap's 200th collection? It's amazing to me to think of all the talent, creativity and patience it takes to come up with 200 kits. Blows my mind! I have a hard enough time thinking of 3 kit ideas for Karen at the end of the year!
Today we're sharing our creations using the Celebrate kit and circles. I like to challenge myself and use tools I've purchase and haven't seen in awhile (blushing). So here I dusted off the Martha Stewart circle cutter. After many mistakes I learned to tape down my paper to keep it from shifting during the cutting process.
I found a silly picture of my dad from New Years Eve 2000 and thought how wonderful this photo coordinates with the colors and sayings from the Celebrate kit. I don't usually scrap one photo pages on paper but it's the only photo I have.
To create the background I started out by taping off areas of the stencil I wanted to use and spritzing white acrylic paint mixed with water over the stencil. I also covered up areas of the paper that was still exposed after placement of the stencil. I repeated that several times, then added a few extra spritz to cover up some mistakes.
Using the circle cutter, tags and several circle punches I added more circles to create a vertical line and tie in my photo.
Club Scrap papers, stencil, bottle cap and tags. Darice and BoBunny jewels. Tim Holtz and Sizzix dies.
I also have a few cards to share with you...as you can see...I like circles. When Celebrate arrived and I saw the circle embellishments, this sort of card popped into my mind. It's a 5x5 gate fold card with an interlocking opening.
- I took a 10x5 piece of cardstock and scored the sheet at 2.5 inches from each horizontal side.
- Cut a large circle out using a Spellbinder die and using the handy dandy Martha Stewart circle cutter, cut out the center of the black fancy circle.
- Adhere to one half side of the card using care to only apply adhesive to the left side of the circle.
- Stamp the circles in different colors and fussy cut. Adhere on top of each other using dimensional adhesive squares.
- Add embellishments such as Dazzle stickers, Stickles and jewels.
- Adhere circle grouping to half of right panel. Here I closed the card so that the circle would line up inside the black cut out portion.
The next two cards are super easy peasy and use part of the Greetings to Go kit for Celebrate.
