Welcome to Week #2 of the Artbooking in August Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Jane’s blog HERE. I had a great time creating for last week’s post and today is no exception! If you missed last week’s project, go HERE. If you get lost along your way, or just want to start at the very beginning so you don’t miss any of the 35 consultants on this fab hop! Here’s Adeline’s Blog HERE.
Our mission was to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.
1. 2 page layout
3. Mini Book
4. Home decor or ‘giftable’ item
This week I created a simple card, then covered a journal. My focus is on the popular hexagons and the CTMH Liquid Glass this week.
I mixed two papers sets for my card, Buzz & Bumble and Surf’s Up. I love the contrasting colors today in this card. And I fussy cut “Fab” out of the Surf’s Up paper and coated the hexagons (cut at 1.5″ and 1.25″) with the Liquid Glass for a boost of shine. I also added some foam adhesive behind the hexagon’s & banner shape for added texture and dimension.
You can really see the shine on this hexagon from the Liquid Glass.
Next up, my Later Skater covered journal. I used up every scrap of this paper that I had left. I got lucky with a couple of the hexagon cuts too and they included a skull, bonus! I also inked the edges of the hexagons to give them some more pop since these papers are pretty loud.
Here are some close ups of the hexagons and a few small details added with the Liquid Glass.
Thank you for hopping with us again this week. Next, you’ll head over to Sarah’s blog HERE. Get ready to be inspired!
