Adventures in Paper Tole

  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.

TLC162-cakeI chose this little doggie and sentiment from Eat Cake Graphics.  I just love this guy (I really need to get some cake to go with him!!)

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:

TLC162-Mojo31

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.
