Holder til notatblokk (engelsk tutorial)

Jane har vært gjestedesigner denne gangen. Siden hun er fra England (men bor for tiden i Saudi Arabia) har hun skrevet engelsk. Jeg velger å ikke oversette den. / Jane has been guest designer. Since she's from England (but lives in Saudi Arabia) she writes English. I have chosen not to translate it so English speakers can read it.

I am feeling very privileged to be asked to showcase this beautiful digi 'Portrait of Morrigane' by Nikki Burnette. I do love the American Indian them so was absolutely delighted when I saw what I was going to be working with :)

For this creation I decided to make a notes holder and here is what I did:

I started by printing my work sheets where I had prepared my background in Photoshop along with the tag sections and of course a the digi.

I used a rubber stamp from StampScapes Nature Sentiments which I then embossed with embossing powder.

Next I used one of my 6x4 never used embossing folders which now have a new lease of life with my rolling pin hammering method hahahaha. Seriously though it is a great way of using the folders that don't fit the area you want embossed and also controlling the areas for embossing.

I embossed both the top and the bottom sections of the note holder, here you can see how I worked around the areas which were not part of the digi.

I coloured the moon with grey Promarkers then used Silver Pearl heat embossing over the top. In different lights the moon takes on different shades and has a lovely shimmer to it.

Promarkers used

Time to colour an IKEA pencil - thank you IKEA, your pencils are just perfect for my wee note cards :) I also coloured a silver butterfly metal charm.

My latest craze at the moment is using lots of beads on either charms for pencils as seen here or to hang tags. I was given loads of beads ages ago and could never think what to use them for and this does seem to be a great way. I have also used light blue sequins in this charm thread for a bit of twinkle.

Time to finish off the tag. My poor sister at this point will have to look away :) I used black and grey feather to follow the colours of the crow/raven and a black/red feather to pick out the red of Morrigane's dress and feathers. Finally I added a black tassel with pearls.

I have missed out a few photos of what I did, just realised I did not take one of the coloured digi which I fussy cut and then attached to the card or of the box I made and coloured with Promarkers to hold the note paper.

Anbefalt hobbybok:


Masse fine vanter med mange fine mønstre som skiller seg ut litt fra det jeg har sett tidligere.

Med heklemasker og gamle håndarbeidsteknikker tryller kunsthåndverker Monica Bjørnvold frem de lekreste vanter. Grunnoppskriften er enkel fastmaskehekling, og det er de ulike mønstrene, broderiene og teknikken som gjør vantene originale og vakre. Du får mange oppskrifter på vanter og pulsvanter, i tillegg kan broderier, mansjetter og farger mikses og varieres i det uendelige.
