A LO and a Challenge

I was in the midst of designing a LO when I was surfing through some blogs and one blog link lead to this blog, Monica's Creative Madness. Where I discovered that they do Silhouette challenges and I was intrigued. I have never before entered a challenge. But when I read that this current challenge was simply design a LO using the Silhouette, of which I was already doing I figured I might as well step out of my comfort zone and take a leap.

So here is my entry for the Cameo Creations Challenge #9.

For the left page I imported my photo into Silhouette Studio Designer and began to expand the picture.

I used Amy Chomas adjustable pen holder for the Silhouette. I used Purple and Yellow Sakura Glaze pens for the balloon's on a setting of of 3 for speed and 9 for thickness.

I used the Wispy Thin Font from Lettering Delights with a Black Glaze Pen for the title.

I added yellow and purple twine to the tails of the balloons to add a bit of dimension.

For the right page I found some awesome grunge film strips in the Silhouette Online Store, which I then re sized to fit my pictures.

Since the theme of his party was Transformers I wanted to be able to include it some how in the LO. For this I used Tim Holtz's core'dinations cardstock and the Amy Chomas embossing stylus to create some Autobot heads. I went and found an Autobot image on the web a pulled it into the Studio to create my pattern.

Silhouette Design Studio

Amy Chomas Adjustable pen holder for the Silhouette Cameo and Embossing Stylus
Tim Holtz core'dinations cardstock
Cardstock from my stash
