We've hit the middle of the week, which means it is time for a new sketch and "twist" over at Twisted Sketches!
This weeks "twist" is cloth and I have to say it was a challenge for me to figure out what I was going to do. It is good to get that push to think outside of the box though. After a lot of mulling over, the sketch, for some reason, inspired me to think sunshine so I decided to make a sun out of fabric.
I ironed some heat and bond onto the back of a 7" piece of fabric, then I cut a 6" circle out of it with my Cameo. I then ironed the circle onto my cardstock. I tore a bunch of strips from the same fabric and cut them at different lengths for the suns rays. I then zig zag stitched the rays onto the cardstock. A bit labor intensive, but I am happy with the result.
The title and the kite were also cut out with my Cameo using Silhouette Studio cut files. I tore the edges of the cloud paper strip for a distressed look. I also added a little ink and some magic mesh pieces to the cardstock base.
