Nancy and I are on the Scraptastic blog today. We're both sharing projects using Scraptastic Club's August This Life Noted kit. Not long ago, I watched THIS awesome video by Jennifer McGuire. In it, she showed how to use wood veneer for faux letterpress, and I've been wanting to try that technique.
Here's the card I made using the LOVE wood veneer in the This Life Noted kit:
You'll want to check out Jennifer's video to see the tutorial. I shared a few pictures on the Scraptastic blog, too. I did some gradient inking on the back of the wood veneer and ran it through my Big Shot. Usually when I try new techniques, they look pretty rough compared to the demo. This time, the technique worked easily. Yeah!
Here's a close-up:
I layered two of the journaling cards and added one of the Cut-Aparts and the black-and-white sticker from the kit. The red patterned paper layered underneath is from the Boys of Summer kit.
Here's a close-up of the layers:
The August This Life Noted kit is sold out, but you can still get the August Wood Veneers to try this technique. Be sure to check out Nancy's take on the kit (it's cool!) on the Scraptastic blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
