I'm excited to be able to share a project I've been working on for the last few weeks. It's a paper quilt project! I'm also excited to post as a guest designer on the CraftwellUSA blog -- showcasing their eBrush. The eBrush has been one of my favorite crafting tools to use since I bought my first machine the year it was introduced on HSN! I enjoyed being a part of Craftwell's eBrush design team for several years. Thanks for asking me back to share a part of this paper quilt series with you.
Just a few supplies are all that are needed to create this fun 7 piece panel for part 4 of the paper quilt sample. I've listed them below.
You will find part 1 of this sampler here. Part 2 is here and part 3 is here.
Once your images are cut*, and your background panels are cut (I used some parchment resume paper I purchased from an office supply store a while back), you can start coloring. I've also incorporated some stamps and ink on the background panels and one or two of the appliques. as you'll see in the images below. If you choose to use the Skitch A Day patterns, I have altered the dress in this week's sketches after coloring.
Using the eBrush, spray the color as desired on each of the appliques. Make sure your marker is seated correctly for an even spray. Use a side to side motion to fill the image. You can add a little shadowing along the edges if you'd like.
If desired, add a faux stitch using an ultra fine Sharpie.
The beauty of this project is that all of the pieces are interchangeable at this point. I can frame each skitch individually or as a group. The materials needed are pretty basic as well.
Paper (white cardstock for the appliques and parchment resume paper for the backgrounds)
Paper trimmer (to cut the backgrounds)
*electronic die cutting machine (optional) you could hand cut each of the images using the patterns in the weekly packets
eBrush, marker adaptor
Tombow markers were used in my samples, but other brands can be used as well.
Glue (Lineco book binding glue)
Stamps (for backgrounds and adding texture and dimension to the paper "fabric.")
Ink pads (I used browns that blended with the parchment colored paper -- and stamped off so the colors weren't too dark.
Stencils (I created the stencil used in this week's projects -- using basic shapes in the eCal3 library)
