March Dust it Off Challenge by Karen
Design Team Member Karen submitted this layout for the March Dust it Off Challenge. She said:
Hi! As promised a LO with a hand cut title. My first thought when I heard the challenge for this month was- what am I going to do? All the other ladies seemed to have various machinery they could dust off and use again but, I have never bought any machinery accept my sewing machine, which I use regularly. I thought about using some of my old stash but it didn't seem very exciting so instead I went for a technique I used to use all the time when I started scrapbooking. I had a collection of fonts on my computer that I downloaded from free sites and I would print out the titles for my LOs in whatever size I wanted and then trace them onto patterned paper and cut them out (tracing rather than printing directly onto the paper was a bit more economical with the patterned paper). Anyway it has been such a long time since I did this. We had updated our computer and all the fonts had been lost, so I had to download a few again. The font I chose to use was called Bounty and I printed the title off at font size 200! To update the look a bit I decided to overlap the letters and stitch through them. Hope you like it.
Now it's your turn to take the March Dust it Off Challenge. See all the details HERE!

What a great reminder of that old alpha technique..I haven't done that for a while either!! LOVE LOVE the photo and those circles w dimension...I couldn't figure out what the "blue" was to the left of those 3 circles.. .so I enlarged it and realized it was the shadow from where those are sticking up!! LOVE THAT!!!ReplyDelete
