Dotty For You...Artwork Tips

Today's post shares with you some great Artwork tips that the Close to My Heart Art department put together to help you maximize your Dotty For You paper kit, and I hope you learn some fun tips like I did!

Sisterly Love Page


Polaroid Snapshot Technique
Create a Polaroid snapshot look by first cutting out a rounded-corner rectangle the size of your focal point. Then, cut a larger rectangle around the negative space, creating the look of a Polaroid. For example, if your subject is 3" × 2", cut a rounded 3" rectangle using the Cricut® machine then discard the rectangle and keep the negative space, cutting that piece at 4" × 2½". Add journaling to the empty white space at the bottom and attach it to the layout at an angle using 3-D foam tape. You’ll now be able to create the Polaroid look for any kind of picture without needing a Polaroid camera!

Kiss Page


Pin Flags Technique
Make a darling accent from your paper scraps by trimming a complementary banner and wrapping it around a pin from the Bling assortment (Z1466) to form a small pin flag.

Surf Page


Stitch a Frame
Use dark thread and stitch around your layout’s focal elements to ground your page.

Sweet Life Page


Making Embellishments Stand Out
Add a bit of white, solid space behind decorative elements, such as this baker’s twine bow, to help them stand out on busy B&T Duos® papers, like this chevron pattern.
