Dimension and Texture

I love both dimension and texture on my scrapbooking projects! I think it adds so much interest! I really love those scrapbookers that are more like artists, think Lucy Edson and Dina Wakely.

I get dimension and texture by just using paper and choosing my embellishments carefully. Here is a recent card I just made using the July Nook kit which features BasicGrey's Lemonade.

To make this card, I placed one of the doilies onto top of the same colored cardstock! I love the monotone because the focus is on the texture. I handcut the flower design from one of the sheets of paper. Look closely at your patterns, you never know what you will see! To make the stem, simply grab a strip of paper and begin rolling. Then twist and turn to give it moment. Yep, it rips a bit, but that is all a part of it!

Here is another card!

I used a canvas Prima tag fro this one! I actually cut the tag so that it fit on my card! Did I mention that hemp is your friend?

I am going to focus on my card-making skills this year! If you know of any great sites that I can use as a resource, please share with me!!!

Happy Monday!

I know I need to work on my card-making skills, too. Have a great day!
