The challenge this week at Scrap Our Stash is Spring Cleaning- dig out something old that needs to be used again- some stash- some equipment or a technique
My first thought when I heard the challenge for this month was- what am I going to do?
All the other ladies seemed to have various bit of machinery they could dust off and use again but I have never bought any machinery except my sewing machine which I use regularly. I thought about using some of my old stash but it didn't seem very exciting so instead I went for a technique I used to use all the time when I started scrapbooking.
I had a collection of fonts on my computer that I downloaded from free sites and I would print out the titles for my LOs in whichever size I wanted and then trace them onto patterned paper and cut them out ( tracing rather than printing directly onto the paper was a bit more economical with the patterned paper). And yes I used to stand up at the window to trace through just like I did at school
Anyway it was such a long time since I did this that we had updated our computer and all the fonts had been lost so I had to download a few again- the font I chose to use was called Bounty and I printed the title of at font size 200!
To update the look a bit I decided to overlap the letters and stitch through them 138/365
I added some detail with some punched circles that I stuck together in groups of three to make 3D shapes
