While we're on a roll, I thought we'd do another Look in the Book today.
I'm on pages 9 and 10 - they're both flowery, so I thought I'd talk about them together.
Who said punch art (or any art) needs to be complicated? Not me!
And look, there's no comma in the middle of the yellow circle, which means this card was made quite a long time ago. If you look at some of the flowers on page 9, you'll see what I mean by the comma. It's a comma, otherwise known as a reflection mark. A bit of pen detail goes a long way and really finishes off the flower.
I'd like to grab my virtual pen and put a comma in that middle above. If only I could...well, I could if I used Photoshop, but I don't. No comma for me.
Once again, virtualness would come in here and I'd add that mark on there.
But still, a simple card, yes?
And little. It's just a gift tag about 7 cm square.
I had a lot of fun making all those layered flowers in the books. If you're looking at page 9, you'll see all the flowers. If you're not, you'll have to take my word for it :o)
Basically, I have a lot of different layered flowers on there. They're all flower punch pieces that have been layered on top of each other to create different looks. The finished flowers are arranged in a grid pattern on the page, so they're easy to look at. I also listed the punches in order from the base up, so you can make the same ones too if you like.
It's pretty fun to go to town with the punching by pulling out all your flower punches and punching them in a variety of colours. Then - the fun part - sitting down and layering them to make lots of different, funky flowers. We're not talking real flowers here, we're talking 'artistic liberties' flowers, okay?
Try it, it's lots of fun! Even my dad thinks so.
This card's from page 10. Actually the card isn't, but the concept of the daisy circles is.
There are three daisy circles on the page, a red, green and blue. On the card above, I extended the line and added two more. It's a simple look and you could stamp the greeting instead if you wanted to.
