Let's Get Geometrical

Hello! 

Welcome to the technique blog hop. We are talking about geometrical shapes and implementing them onto our projects with purpose. 


If you arrived here from Darlys Recker's blog, you are in the right spot. 

My technique was very simple, inks and daubers.

I am a super busy mom, and wanted to show easy this style can be adapted without the need of a paper trimmer, die cutting machine, stamps or even blocks. 

I started by lightly inking up my blending tool. Using a light hand, I twisted the ink on my white daisy cardstock. I choose 5 colors and repeated this process for each color. 
Next, I took a finger dauber and inked it up well, and applied a good amount of pressure to make a smaller circle inside the larger circle of corresponding color.

You can see a nice close up of that here. 

I added a thin cut sentiment (sending hugs left over from a previous project) which was cut 3 times from black cardstock and layered. 

I also wondered what this would look like if the distress oxide inks were activated, with water? A much softer look and feel. Same technique to apply the ink and with a little manipulation from water, a completely different look and feel. 


I added a sticker from the smitten collection with 3D foam tape, drew a doodle border and stamped tiny hearts along the way. 

I love both cards for different reasons. 
Now head on over to Tamara Sandwisch blog to see her interpretation of let's get geometrical. Before you go, I'd love to hear what you think about my technique/cards in the comments. 

Thanks for stopping by!

One Day - In-person Crop

Hello!
Today I am excited to bring to you an in-person event. This No fuss, No frills, one day crop is simple enough to get you down to business.  
This crop is a single Day Crop, fundraiser for the Noah's Ark Preschool.  There are tables available at affordable prices, and even electric for those who need it. 

I love that there will be a garage sale table available for you to shop from. You can also donate to it, and the proceeds will benefit the Preschool also. 

You're on your own for lunch and dinner. However, with access to a fridge and microwave,  or delivery from door dash, you have nothing to worry about. 

If you're local to me, I'd love to see you there. 

Danielle.
