Frances Holliday Alford here. Happy Holidays to all.
I usually make my cards for the holidays and other occasions.
I have a method that I have been using for a few years. I start with a large piece of paper, some acrylic medium and a large hodge podge of scraps. I used foil candy wrappers, vintage stickers, wrapping paper and printed tissue paper.
I started by gluing the pieces down, overlapping and with random placement.
I like to put glue (acrylic medium, Modge Podge or other white glue that dries clear) below and above the pieces. I used some spray ink and some alcohol ink on this one.
After the sheets are completely dry, I cut them into 4"x6" pieces. It is interesting to see how each one comes out after the random placement on the page.
I add Washi Tape to the edges of most of the cut pieces and then glue them to a 6"x8" card.
I have also made some with paper that is painted and glittered. I used ink spray by Dylusions and added glitter. Once again, I cut them into 4"x6" pieces. I added German paper cuts of Christmas Trees, angels, and other images. Like the others, these were glued to larger folded cards.
I ordered the Strathmore blank cards from Amazon. The German paper cuts are available on Ebay and also at http://www.etsy.com/shop/32NorthSupplies. The Dylusions Ink Spray is available atwww.interweavestore.com/and also on Amazon. A great source for glitter is http://www.artglitter.com/. Washi Tape is found on Ebay and Amazon and is a Japanese masking tape that comes in a large variety of beautiful colors and designs.
When you are all through with this project, your cordless hand vaccuum will be your best friend.
