Hello, Karen here with a scrapbook page using this week's Design of the Week. When I saw this shape I was instantly reminded of a photo taken of my daughter 21 years ago and the mess she got into eating an ice-cream.
What You Need:-Silhouette Cameo
Pen Holder and Permanent Pen
Water Colour Pencils
STEP 1 - Making your ice-creams.
- The first thing I did was to resize the shape to 4.5 ins (11.5cms) and ungroup (Shift +Ctrl+G) it. I mirrored the ice-cream and then cut out the two colours of ice-cream x 2
- Next I used the release option, under the Modify menu to separate the cone from the diamond shapes on the cone and removed the diamond shapes using Ctrl+X - once you have done this be sure not to move the cones as your are going to past the diamond shapes back in the the next step.
- I cut the cone from Kraft card and without removing the mat from my Silhouette swapped the ratchet blade for a brown Silhouette pen . I then pasted back the diamond shapes and deleted the cones
- I drew the diamonds (remember to change your Silhouette settings from ratchet blade to pen).
STEP 2 - Drawing the title and borders.
- I am really loving big statement titles at the moment so chose a phrase that would stand out. I resized this to 9ins (23cms) wide and placed it on my drawing area .
- Next I chose two sketch borders - one to go around my page and one to go round my photo. I placed these onto the page and also added the ice-cream cone shapes and a rectangle to represent my photo - I often use my Silhouette software to lay out where I want things on a srapbook page.
- Finally I used my favourite sketch font (Georgia Peach Sketch) to write a little bit of journaling on the bottom right of the page.
- I deleted the ice-cream cones and rectangle representing my photo and put a permanent pen into a Silhouette pen holder to draw the title and borders.
- Using water colour pencils I coloured in the title and then added the cut out ice-cream cones and photo.
- Finally I added a red gem 'cherry' to the top of each ice-cream.
