090813 CKC September Kit "You Go, Girl!" Tutorials
This month I had a real favorite among the papers in the Citrus Twist July inspiration kits.
It is so bright & summery & looks like a beach full of umbrellas to me!
I had nothing remotely like it in my own stash but thought I could do a fair imitation.
I grabbed my handy hexagon punch & an assortment of bright 6x6 paper for the smaller scale.
Just punch & draw lines from point to point for a cheater,
or cut from point to point & rearrange the pieces in a pleasing way.
I especially liked how the striped papers looked.
This one happens to be double-sided so I used both sides - fun!
Next up is a paper from the Summertime Paper add-on kit.
See that blazing sun paper under the label?
(The name & maker weren't listed.)
I love how much movement there is in the pattern.
I made sure to alternate the direction of the sun rays to imitate that movement.
Let's add a few geotag accents out of map paper made with a homemade template - cute!
I just punched a circle & cut a point into the hole in the paper for the pattern.
A little tip: punch the center hole BEFORE you trace & cut the pattern - much easier to handle.
Okay! Go make a geotag template - it's trendy - then use your favorite papers to make a trendy custom accent :~D
