Who doesn’t love a bit of inspiration? While this blog is more focussed on my hobby of photographing anything and everything…I do other stuff too – craft being a significant interest of mine. I find most of my initial crafty ideas online, and so thought “Heck, I want to give some back!”
You can find the various stencils, cards and other things I create on my Pinterest (not all of them, but the internet might explode if I posted everything I do). Also, on my Instagram I post some things like little drawings and designs – just a bit of fun!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! if Pinterest is a bridge too far, here’s an express click to any DIY I do post on this blog.
Hooray for sharing!
…..to reality! WOOT WOOT WOOT!
I made this paper design a few months back when my Aunty moved house; the background colour was actually sky blue but my iPad (which I took the photo on) didn’t like that, so it looks white instead. I had read somewhere that using mounting tape can create a nice depth in designs, so experimented with the banner. Turns out things that are the same colour as the background really pop if you raise them a bit!
An example of what I do sometimes. Grab a knife and slice – rather paper than people, right?
I tried to make a paper shadow-cut. Turns out you can do a lot if you just try! Ok, fine, I’ll stop being cheesy now.
All you’ll need for this project… 1) Mod Podge (or any clear-drying PVA adhesive) and a brush/sponge for application 2) Sharp scissors; I actually used manicure scissors – made it easy to get to the edges. 3) Wooden cube blocks – you can get large or small; it just depends on the look you want!
