Keren Baker - new GD at Paperartsy

This week we welcomed Keren to the Paperartsy team - and some fabulous projects she gave us.  The first day was Clean and Simple - and I've adapted one of her ideas from that day.

I used the Dina Wakley heart set , and Eggplant, South Pacific and Limelight Frescos.


I'd forgotten how much fun heat embossing is...



I did start out by attempting one of the paper cutting pieces Keren showed us on another of her days, but my craft knife must be very blunt, as I got some very rough edges to my cutting, so have abandoned that for now!

Entering this to the Paperartsy challenge.

Really nice colour combination Helen, and the white just pulls them together perfectly.

As techniques go, embossing wins hands down on cutting- I really don't like fussy cutting- much more fun and so effective!

What a great effect! Actually, not only does 'Love Rock' - heat embossing does in my opinion! Oh, the joy it brings - second only to Crackle glazing and - for me - shrink plastic! I love those abstraty hearts against those splashes of colour. Gorgeous, Helen! Julie Ann xxx

PS - I meant 'abstracty'! I know that's not a word; but it is more of one than 'abstraty'! Julie Ann xxx
