Kathy Orta ‘File Under M for Memories’ mini album with DCWV ‘Once Upon A Time’

Kathy Orta - 'File under M for Memories' mini album with DCWV joanne sealeHello! I recently finished a new mini album using a pattern made by Kathy Orta of Paper Phenomenon, I love Kathy’s patterns and also love the patterned paper made by Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) so chose to use their ‘Once Upon A Time’ paper stack with this album, and it worked really well!
I transcribe all of Kathy’s patterns into cutting files for my Silhouette Cameo so they can take a while to make, this album contained approx 100 different pieces so I have been kept busy, but it was a very enjoyable time.
I use painted paper cuts to decorate by albums and hope you enjoy looking at it in the video below and photographs that follow.
If you decide to make this album too, please leave me a comment as I would love to see your creations!

Better late than never :)

Hello! :) I’ve finally finished the March calendar art journal page and yes it is late but at least I completed it :) I wanted to try creating papercut hot air balloons from scratch using a hand drawn image that was scanned and traced using the silhouette cameo software.
I really enjoyed making this page, especially the background which was made using stencils and varying shades and values of blue, finished with a wash of transparent marine blue FW ink… I love that ink soo much! There is a process video below the photos
