On this layout our creative director Eileen Collins used the textiles to create the title and unique fabric buttons to add dimension.
To create the title Eileen stamped using Savannah Capital and Lowercase Large. Stamping one letter at a time, she was able to connect the letters to give it a perfect script look. For the word "Graders" she stamped the title onto the largest size of the Square Textiles in two parts "Grade" and "rs" but cutting around the two parts while the textile was still on its plastic backing sheet - she was able to combine the two parts seamlessly. She used blue ink and Main Street Large Capital and Lowercase letters stamped and cut out individually to finish off the title.
To make the button embellishments Eileen stamped images from the Skin Deep set and adhered the Circle Textiles to the Circle Technique Tiles. To finish the button look - she used a tiny hole punch to create 2-4 holes and threaded ribbon or thread through the holes.
Next month we will be doing a "Reader Challenge" to inspire you to use Textiles and Technique Tiles in new ways! We want to see what you come with! Of course there will be prizes, and we will feature selected entries in our newsletter, our website and right here on the blog.
