Not All Layers Need To Be Paper
general Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Inspiration Milena Woodiwiss Mixed Media Nerd Academy Scrapbooking
Hello all! Milena here with another sketch and tutorial for you.
Sometimes you might look at a sketch and think it won’t work because you’re in the mood to get your hands dirty and incorporate a little bit of mixed media on your page. Not all the layers in a sketch need to represent paper. For the large bottom layer of this sketch, I cut a stencil out of vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo and misted through it to create a soft background layer. I used vinyl instead of paper for my stencil because I find it gives cleaner edges when using textured card stock.
I began by preparing the file within Silhouette Studio.
I then changed my cutting material to vinyl.
Then I changed my Silhouette setting to Load Media and put the vinyl straight into the Cameo.
I weeded the image and placed the Transfer Paper on top.
Then attached the vinyl to my page.
I misted through the stencil and – voila! – I had a lovely background image.
Go ahead and give this a try sometime if you’re feeling the need to get your hands dirty. Mixed Media can always replace a layer in a sketch.
