1  paper cutting in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by art_babe on: May 16, 2008 04:18:29 AM
  I learned about paper cutting from an artist workshop at my college this year taught by Nikki Mcclure. She is awesome and I have even seen her calender advertised on here. This is a link to her site. http://www.nikkimcclure.com/

  This is my very small paper cutting project. It is easy to make it come out looking beautiful. You basically just cut out negative spaces with an exacto knife on thick cardstock as if you were making a stencil. The art is the "stencil" and you can put another piece of paper behind it in a special color or mount it on a board or in a frame. I have more to post later when I find them.

  Here is a simple mothers day card I made using this technique.

  Here is the paper cut before being glued down.

  This is the image source.

  You use grafite to transfer your image. You scribble on the back in pencil and then trace over the top onto the card stock you will be cutting. The image is then transfered and you just need to figure out what to cut to make the image work for you. If you make a mistake you can probably hide it when you glue the whole this down.

Let me know if you have any questions!

2  embroidered fabric mother's day card! in Needlework: Completed Projects by art_babe on: May 16, 2008 04:04:49 AM
My mom is coming into town this weekend so I bought myself some extra time to finish her gift. I made a fabric card by ironing on interfacing to polyester, embroidering on the inner and  outer layers separately and then stitching all the sides together and ironing it down the middle.

Thanks! I need to get a bigger hoop then. I changed it a bit so here is a new pic:

I added some green to the bow to even out the tone.

Smiley I would like some help with what to do with it now. It is a gift for my friend who traveled with me. A small pillow??? the side of a purse?
