RIC#13 - House of Holland Challenge

The Runway Inspired Challenge this week is a brightly colored houndstooth piece by House of Holland. Not being one to pass up a houndstooth challenge, I began misting and highlighting and coloring my glittery B&W paper to resemble the outfit on the model.

I finished last night but had to wait until this evening to take pictures in the sun.  I'm extraordinarily happy the sun is out late these days. Bring me sunshine any day of the week!



Materials: Pop up tape, thick white cardstock, black glitter paper, black and white houndstooth glitter paper, white thickers, black and white twine.

Two cards of encouragement

These cards were submitted to the 2012 Gallery Idol competition. Results came out today, and the winners were impressive. I was not one, which is no surprise, but I figured I might as well try!

To make these, I sketched the cards out by hand and used Photohop to map out the placement of the sentiments and the fonts. After that, I used the Silhouette Cameo (and the program that comes with it) to cut out the letters.

I'm half tempted to sell these or others like them, but the pop-ups just take so darn long to put together that I'm reviewing the situation. The letters were teeny! I think I better think it out again.



[Can you spot the reference to Oliver! (1968) which I got to watch last weekend? Yay for long weekends.]
