Cardstock and a Cameo

Today I’ve made a layout for Hobbyworld with a short supplies list. I’ve used white cardstock, some letter stickers and some vellum from my stash. I used the Cameo to cut out the shapes I wanted and used mists and other color mediums to make a background that looks like it’s been watercolored.

I wanted a dreamy feeling to the layout, it’s supposed to be a self portrait of the person I want to be. I discovered there are very few pictures of myself, I guess that’s what happens when there are cute kids and dogs around to take pictures of.

I found a suitable cloud and some pretty feathers in the Silhouette online store. I typed the word can in different sizes and fonts inside the cloud. A tip to keep the small in-between-shapes in the letters in the right place is to put some washi tape over the shape before removing it from the cutting mat. That way it stays in place until you glue it to the background.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
