Text type and texture.

About this page:

You can buy this text cut file here. I love this song by Eva Cassidy and felt that the words can fit any person you want to make a scrapbook page about. I used this cut file as a double stencil on this page... you have to watch the video to see why and how! Becuase I used it as a stencil, I made the cut from thick watercolor paper. (see related products below).
I am so excited to take a little break over Easter with my family but I scheduled a video for next week already. If you have any questions about this page, please leave me a comment. Your support means the world to me and are the VERY reason I am doing a video every week. Please share your pages with me! If you make a page/project inspired by my videos, please upload it to my April blog gallery here. I would love to see what you do!

You color my life!

Free cut file alert! 
You can get this cut file for free on iheartstudio
This is the second page I made using the paint stroke cut files.  This time I used gouache and it has a bit softer look than the acrylic paint. I decided to match the paint strokes with patterned paper and chipboard embellishments. This was really fun to make. Also, you will see in the video how I covered up a part that did not really work for me.

Reminds me of you: A video!

I created this page using some paint stroke cut files. I know it might sound strange to make paint strokes... but I wanted to layer them and paint them different colors and use different media on it. And I must say, I love the results. On this page I used impasto acrylic paint. The Liquitex Acrylic colors I used are (in the order they appear on my page): Cadmium Yellow, Indian Yellow (mixed with a tad of red), Brilliant Yellow green, Bright Aqua Green, Transparent viridian hue (mice with some white), Light Blue Permanent and Prussian Blue Hue.  I used the Canson Watercolor paper to cut out the paint strokes. You can see more details of the page on 2peas here. The cut files can be found in the iheartstudio shop.

Blog video: HART layout process!

Hello! I am so excited and happy to bring you my first independent video! I actually just woke up this morning with the incredible desire to share this process with you. So I had a wonderful creative day. I hope you like the page and the process... it's like a mini art class. I am not going to say anything further... you have to watch it!

Here is the page:

If you love the cut file, you can buy it here: Heart 12x12 cut file. On the product page, you will find a little video telling you the settings I used to cut my shape out. I did use some thick water color paper for this cut. If you use paper this thick be sure to watch my little silhouette video here.
