Welcome to the final week of the Artbooking in August Blog Hop. Each Monday in August CTMH consultants will showcase creative ways to use the new Artbooking cartridge. If you are joining us for the first time, welcome! Here is a summary of challenges we've created along with links to the projects:
Week 1: 2 page Scrapbook Layout
Week 2: Card
Week 4: Home Decor or 3D Item
The blog hop is a great big circle but if you get lost along the way please go HERE for a complete list of participants. If you're coming from Emily's blog you are on the right track!
This week I created a 6 x 6 canvas wall hanging inspired by the artwork on page 42 of the Idea Book. I started out by creating a template in Cricut Craft Room using the layers feature. Doing this allows you to get your proportions correct and eliminate unnecessary cuts or waste.
Once I was happy with my design I removed the square shapes from my layers since those can be cut by hand which left me with only the Artbooking elements to cut. For this canvas piece I used the Border on page 72 and the "family" sentiment on page 67.
For some added dimension I cut the "family" sentiment 3 times and layered them together with my Bonding Memories Blue. I've found that when it comes to Artbooking and these intricate shapes a liquid glue with a small tip (like this one) is a lifesaver!
I would love to know what you think. Please leave me a comment and then hop to Cassandra's blog to see what she's created!
