How is your week going? So far so good here! I received my kits from Cord Scrapbook Studio yesterday and can I tell you I am soooo excited about this month's work. I love this hobby so much. Just the site of all new paper and embellishments really gets my mojo flowing!! I can't wait to dive in. Today I am going to be working on my sketches to get them ready to scrap this weekend!! I can't wait. I will give you a little hint of what I have to work with this month: Little Yellow Bicycle, Studio Calico, and Authentique! So excited!
On to today's project- Over at Practical Scrappers the topic for today is how do you use Negative Space. I have to say I am totally addicted right now to this technique! The Silhouette makes this technique so easy. For this layout I usually start with a cardstock background but this time I wanted the pattern paper to be the background and I wanted it to peek through the cardstock. So for this layout I used my Cameo and plotted out my cardstock on the screen. I used a 10x10 inch base and then plotted out where I wanted to cut out the stars. For some of the stars I even created an outline so that I could put a white outline on it to draw more attention to the negative space. I then added my title and photos and I was done. The negative space makes the perfect embellishment! Have you tried this technique in your scrapbooking or cardmaking projects? If you need more inspiration head on over to Practical Scrappers today and check out the amazing work from the other Design Team members. The work is so amazing!
