Using Embellishments as Templates with Rachael

Hello everyone!  The weekend is almost here... woohoo!

Design Team member Rachael Elliot used the large numbers that come in the June Limited Edition kit in such a creative way... as templates!

Here's Rachael to tell us about it:

The big black numbers that are in the June Limited Edition kit are great for adding to pages but they also make perfect templates.

I wanted to create some numbers with depth so I drew around the number 1 onto the patterned paper as it was and then trimmed off the cream border and traced around it again creating a slightly smaller number.

I then inked the edges of the numbers and layered them together using pin flair glue gel.

Just in case you missed our post yesterday, we have a call out for designers for our sketch blog!  You can find all of the details here.

Hope you'll visit us again tomorrow for some more tips and techniques from the design team!
