The card for today uses patterned paper that is reminiscent of a multimedia project such as an art journal or collage. The effect, in my opinion, is always unique and interesting as well as beautiful. I used that theme to create the card using supplies from the Spellbinder’s July 2021 card kit of the month called, “Damask Daydream” as well as my own tools and supplies.
Multimedia is fun because you can play with your supplies and get your hands into it. Don’t be afraid to get ink or glue on your hands. Be a kid again and just have fun with it! As you can see from the video below that I used repetition in my design by having the die cut flower appear three times in a line on the card. This is a common way to create interest in your card. After die cutting the flower, I used some Nuvo drops in bright gold to add some shine to the flowers here and there. Of course, I used my fingers to add it because that is half the fun of making art-getting messy!
I hope you’ll choose to give this card a try and don’t be afraid to play around with what you have. Even if you don’t have the same supplies seen in the video, look around in your craft supplies and see what alternatives you can come up with. Most of all, have fun and be fearless in your creativity!
To see how I made the card, watch the video on YouTube, which you can see below. I’ve posted an additional video below the YouTube video showing how I decorated the inside of the card.
