Today I'm going to share a tutorial with you all on how to create wavy paper lace edge on your circle layouts or cards!
Last month I was so honored to be Scrapbook News and Review's Featured Artist, and made this tutorial for that feature. Now I want to share it here in my blog too ;o)
This is the layout I did with this edge technique;
Onirie. Bird stamp from Layers of Color, and flowers, green journal paper pieces, clear tapes and small butterflies stamps from Prima.
And a close-up showing some details and the paper lace;
I used lots of Prima products on this layout from CHA release winter 2010.
And here a close-up of the lace edge;
And now, over to the steps for how to do this edge;
Wavy Paper Lace Edge Tutorial
•Ranger Dabber (Snow Cap) or white acrylic paint
•Chalk ink or Ink in color of choice
•2 papers; 1 solid and 1 patterned and not too thick
•Strong Clear Glue
•Paper Craft Glue
Step Two: Cut out the circle and remove the edge
Step Six: Now you can easily and quickly cut the short lines and you’ll have all your small paper pieces ready for the next step
Step Nine: Use the paint dabber or acrylic paint to randomly cover the punched edges of each paper piece.
Step Ten: All your paper pieces show now look like this
Please note! This tutorial is for the thinnest paper lace sample shown here on the turqoise layout. To create the wider more vintage one, you have to make the template larger (wider in both ends and longer) size depending on how large you want the paper lace to be. Please also note, for each inch you add to the template, you have to take away x2 on the with on the circle background paper to create the same size on your work. I also recommand you to do step sixteen before step eleven when the paper pieces are larger, so they will fold enough before sweing them on.
All this probably seems as much work, but I promise you that it aint difficult to do at all. And when you have done it one time, its very easy and quick to do another one next time ;o)
Hope you liked my tutorial, and wish you good luck if you will give it a try, which I hope you will! ;o)
Take care everyone, and enjoy the week!
