Have you ever seen a digital kit and thought to yourself...
Well guess what you can! Yep, our very own Nifty Gal Marie Johansson has created a fun & vibrant mixed media hybrid page using our February new release digital kit 'PICK YOUR DESTINY' In no time at all, you'll be cutting and pasting printed digital kits like a seasoned professional, so lets check out Marie's 'nifty' step-by-step tutorial to get started!
'Shout Out The Devil'
If you are lucky enough to have a 12X12 printer at home you can start by printing your papers as soon as you have downloaded the digital kit. If you are going to be using your local printing service all you have to do is transfer the 300dpi 12"x12" digital papers onto a USB ready for printing. Ask for a heavy weight paper no less than 200-250gsm that way you are getting a final print that is a little more sturdier than a standard paper. NB: This may cost slightly more but is well worth it.
Now that you have had the papers printed its time to start playing with your scissors and glue and create so! Add some texture to the background by choosing a stencil and applying ink to the base paper.
Using your fave stamps try overlaying some more texture by stamping using a permanent ink to prevent smearing. For some added tactile qualities add washi and thread to your projects.
Now its time for some fun layering. First a piece of paper and a diecut star. I also cut out elements I printed from the digital kit.
For extra dimension use foam dots to adhere your elements, and for an extra special personal touch why not add some doodling to your project!
