We're excited to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo with SaborPapel! Have you seen their fabulous papers? They ROCK!
I've had to much fun playing with them.
Here's a peek at the collection I used for this project!
Now that you've been introduced to this cool-lection of fabulous papers, let me share my project for today.
eBrush (marker adapter - sharpie)
Foam Core or canvas
contact paper for stencil, transfer tape
electronic cutting machine, software
image for tracing - cutting file in SVG format
Flower pot (Dreaming Tree - Love you Mom collection)
additional dies and cutting files, as desired (flowers, leaves and flourish/vine)
Sabor Olé collection
adhesive, pop dots
Let's get started:
Create your stencil using the word art image or file of your choice in your cutting machine's software. Size to fit your base and your frame. Cut in clear contact paper - weed the lettering leaving the negative for the stencil. Add the transfer tape and transfer the stencil to the foam core surface. Make sure it's secure on the surface.
Using the eBrush and the marker, spray the stencil. Let it dry a little longer and then carefully remove the stencil. Lift any remaining pieces from the now painted surface. Be careful, the sharpie will smear or scratch. It's best to let it sit a day or two before doing much more with this piece.

Now it's time to embellish. Cut flowers, leaves, vines and any other embellishments as desired. Add a little more dimension using the eBrush for some more color and pinch and shape to the leaves. The florals came from 2 packs of Ole cutouts. Add some bling to each of the flowers for a little more fun. Frame if desired.
To highlight the papers even more, I cut 1 flower pot from the Love You Mom collection, using my electronic cutting machine, Fill a mat with circles in 3 different sizes and cut a few leafy branches. Using the eBrush, lightly edge each of the circles. Run the circles through a crimper to "soften" the fibers, crumple, stack, insert a brad into the center. You can add a "stem" if you'd like, but I just hot glued them to paper covered styro form in the pot. Add some greenery and a flower from the cuts that come with your paper collection to decorate the flower pot.
