Tuesday Tutorial with Lisa

 

Hi, and welcome! Lisa here, bringing you this week's Tuesday Tutorial! Grab those chisel nib markers, and the Slimline Zig Zag Edger Dies because we're about to create some rainbow goodness! I shared this on my YouTube and loved it so much I made another to share here! 


Start by die-cutting out five of these Zig Zags using the Slimline Zig Zag Edger Dies. 


We're breaking this Zig Zag down into sections, creating arrows with each color we use. Use that chisel nib to make quick work of this task. Don't like the colors I started with, no biggie! Make this your own by using your favorite colors.  


Work from dark to light with one color group and then light to dark with the next color group. Continue coloring the strips alternating colors. I worked with a Rainbow of Colors, but you could pick a favorite color palette to work with. 


 Once you have the strips colored, cut them in half (at the 4.25" mark) using your paper trimmer.


Using a scrap piece of paper no wider and no longer than the strips, add adhesive to cover the scrap paper and line die-cut pieces up, making sure not to leave any gaps between each die-cut piece. 


Trim excess from edges, add mounting foam to the back, and center on an A2 card base. 


Stamp sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Bold Statements Set and center over the Zig Zag pattern.
