Hi Everyone! I'm really excited to share this project with you for my first time as a She's a Sassy Lady Guest Designer! I really want to thank Sheila for this opportunity! I thought this was an appropriate project since I'm showing you what I've learned in a few short months. The first photo is a layout I did for my daughter's bathroom shadow box. The second is it's replacement after learning and practicing a number of new techniques. Here's the inspiration I used to make both - her shower curtain.
First, I pulled out my Gypsy and paper and laid out exactly what I wanted.
Then I began working with each individual cut-out. Layered, doodled, and inked then finished by adding some googly eyes.
To finish up my project I decided to add more depth and dimension. I used pop dots to have some images coming up off the page. (A quick hint about pop dots - they work much better when a bit cold. So if it's warm in your house - put them in the fridge for a bit and they won't be SO sticky until after adhered to your objects then they start to warm up and stick much better.) Each layer of the water is popped out from the one behind it. One of the clouds is popped and the frog has about three layers popped. I also bent the grass cuts forward a bit only adhering the bottom to the page. This gives a nice dimension to the layout and some added depth.
You can see a huge difference in the layout, yet the one with added depth and dimension really makes my project more impressive and more artistic.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and project. Please check out my She's A Sassy Lady for more fun and tutorials!
