Main Kit Techniques with Carla Marchee

What I have done with this page to make it cool:

For the circle under the layers I had used a cardboard from a box.
I used a plate to trace around with a pencil, then cut around it and painted it with gesso. 

And for the cute butterfly I
used a punch. In the middle of the butterfly I applied glue and then sprinkled beads on it. Then shook the rest of the excess beads and sprinkled them on again until they were stuck to the glue.

What is done with the wire rope is very simple, but super nice result, I would like to tell this.

You use a stylus or pen or whatever you want to use. I had used a copic marker, and turned the wire rope around it several times so that you get a spiral. The ends of the rope you are doing through the eye of a rope and then making a knot in the rope, see pictures:

What I
have also done with this page is this:
The tags
that are in the main kit... I would like it to stick out above the photo, but the tag is very long so I have cut it, very easy and fun.

What I did with the first layer on this layout:

This design paper I wanted to create the first layer also as an oval curves. How I did it was quite simple. I traced around a round object a quarter of the way then I moved the round object over a little bit and traced a quarter way around the other side. This created an oval shape that I cut out for my layer.  See picture.
