The technique lover's challenge for this week was paper tole. I have done this before with flowers but the stipulation for the challenge was to NOT use flowers.
This is the detail of the layers. I colored each layer.
He looked a little lonely so I added some confetti and streamers.
The papers are from a Colorbök set of papers from the $ section at Joann's.
It is spring break this week and my dd (Gracie the 9 yr old)was looking for something to do. So I suggested she try this with the Crab and Co. stamp set (SU!) for my nephew's birthday. Gracie often needs help with layout so I also had her try Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday (Mojo31) sketch.
This is what she came up with:
I would not have picked out these colors--but they work.
I did help her with the paper cutter--she gets confused by the measurements.
Thanks for your patience for me to post again. It has been a little crazy around here.
