Weekly Challenge: Technique 5/26/09 **WINNER ANNOUNCED**

Postby anja_wade » May 26th, '09, 9:18 pm

Hi Everyone!
Yikes! I forgot that yesterday was Monday as I was not at work! Sorry about that.
For this week's technique challenge, I thought we'd have some fun with titles! I love hand-stitching and end up doing it on many of my titles. Sometimes, I use stitching to make my title. Here's an example...
Image
To do this, just lightly write your letters with pencil, use a paper-piercer to make holes all along your pencil marks, then stitch along the holes. It's really easy and fun and I love the look of it.
Your challenge is to try this out!
Upload your layouts to the gallery and link them to this thread by June 9th to be eligible to win a $10 Cocoa Daisy credit. And remember, participating in the challenge also qualifies you for Cocoa Daisy rewards!
Have fun!
I'm eagerly awaiting your creations!
:D

I'm going to channel my inner geek / teenager now (I've been hitting the forums hard tonight) and say 'this post is made of WIN'. In more normal speak, I'll say, 'this is awesome'. Love the stitching, love the small photos. It. Rocks.

This is a combo of the bad picture prompt and this technique challenge. I'm embarrassed that it's not very artistic, but it's my first layout in a week or so, so I'm just trying to get back into some sort of work :)

Image

I bought a new book today that was like 20 creative fonts to play with or something like that. I'll have to go find it for the title. I bought it because I've been experimenting with hand-cut titles and this is my third hand-stitched title. I thought practicing writing some fonts would give me some cool looks with that.

I used my printer to print the word yes on ordinary inkjet paper. I then placed the paper on top of my layout and made my holes through both the printed paper and my layout underneath. It takes some strenght to use the Silent Setter when there are many layers, but even if my arm is hurting a little today, I'm happy with the result... ;D ;D

I was inspired by the OLW challenge, where the word is yes and the prize is the Strawberry Lemonade kit from Cocoa Daisy...!!! I actually used a lot of stuff from the May add ons for my layout. :)

There is a really annoying shiny spot in the photo, sorry for that. It's really grey here today and I had trouble getting enough light to take my photo.

I love your design Anna. I've never thought about stitching through a photo before and I'm going to file that away to remember in the future!

Oh no! I can't believe I missed the deadline for this. I so wanted to do it. (I still will though ;D). I love this idea so much, I've just been really busy with other bits and pieces. Where is the time going to?!
