It is week 5 in the 'Embellish This' competition at Scrap 'n' Craft with T which means it is my week for setting the challenge. And what technique do I just love? Yep you guessed it... Paper Rolling!
So my five criteria points for the challenge have been set as:
- Paper Rolling
- Non traditional Shape Layout
- Monochromatic Layout with a hint of one other
- Predominant Stamping
- Embellishment to be made using Clear Acetate or Transparency
Here is my sample using the gorgeous Bo Bunny 'Love Bandit' Collection and Core'dinations cardstock for a lots and lots of quilling.
I have again used the seriously funky edge-rolling technique which creates the perfect border for the circular layout.I also used a large flourish stamp with pink ink that didn't really stand out the way I'd hoped so I decided to outline the stamped image using a brown gel pen which really helped with the definition. Also decided to ink the fabric thickers and outline them with the same brown gel pen. Another favourite technique of mine... paper piercing, just can't seem to do a layout with poking atleast one whole through the paper.
I made the embellishment using paper rolls to form the heart shape and mounted them onto clear acetate wings with paint pen outlines. This is the hardest of the rolling techniques but definitely well worth the effort... If you would like to tackle this technique you can find my tutorial HERE.
From farm to you...
