So you may notice that my blog header has been updated! It's about time. I have been meaning to do it forever, and finally got around to it! I love the bright floral prints against the black and cream chevron background.
You may notice some puffy dots around the page. I discovered a simple way to make them quite by accident. Here's the story:
I was working on this layout below, which is for this weeks sketch on the My Scraps & More sketch blog. I wanted a way to highlight the waves a bit to make them stand out more. A white pen wasn't going to do enough, and I didn't have a paintbrush thin enough to paint them. Stickles were not an option becuase I didn't want glitter, and then I remembered that I had a box of old puffy fabric paints in my craft closet. I'm talking OLD, here...10+ years for sure.
(Layout info: I used papers from Studio Calico "Sundrifter" and "Atlantic" collections.)
So I grabbed a white one and tried to unclog it a bit by banging and squeezing it on my craft mat. The little drops that came out eventually dried, and an idea was born! Oh and I did use the white puffy paints on my page as you can see here:
So here is a quick, short little video just showing how I made the dots! After they dry, you can stick them on with liquid adhesive (like I did in my blog header) or glue dots, too!
