Day 4: Online Class Pattern Play

This is my second post today!!

Yesterday in the Pattern Play class, we learned many, many ways to alter patterned paper.  I thoroughly enjoyed their ideas and tips, but I found myself thinking that I don't even do well with the basic paper, let alone altering it and making it even fancier!!  So I didn't make anything yesterday but when I woke up this morning and looked out my window at an incredibly dreary and drizzly day - I had an idea!!

Praying for You

The technique on this was to score your patterned paper and then to sand at the scores to give it a little extra pattern.  

That's all I have to say on this - because today's online videos went up half an hour ago and I am ready to play!!

I used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts.  It's a great sketch for playing with patterned paper!!

  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink Scattered Showers
  • Paper: Pebbles Seen and Noted
  • Ink: Memento Black and Copics
  • Accessories: Scalloped border punch, misc gems

The score lines are fab for rain lines and the patterned papers are bright and cheerful. Must be a short summer shower! x

Hi Kim - the score-and-sand technique gives a fabulous "rain" effect - perfect background for the umbrella! Love the colours too.

Kim, you know you always work magic with your cards. This is beautiful, now the sanding had me running out of the room this time. LOL Looks just like the rain coming down. Sorry that it is.

Brilliant! Diagonal score line "rain" is genius. And what a cheerful rainy day card. (Of course, I love anything with an umbrella on it. LOL) Merrit
