a great inspiration! thank you!
pretty layout Michelle! --Ann
Such pretty colors! I like the touch of woodgrain that you added - looks great with the pastels. Maria
Absolutly great! Nice that you try out watercolors. It looks phantastic!
Thank you so much!!
StudioMbyMarian - I've tried it before with more glue and my needle got all gummy, so this time since I knew I wanted to sew through the triangles, I used minimal adhesive and my needle was fine. I tried different tensions but found that "2" worked best (I just have a basic Singer machine)
beautiful job! I love the embossing and watercolors.

This month, I wanted to focus on triangles for a summery page. I cut out some triangle templates with my Silhouette Cameo as I had a specific size and type of triangle that I wanted, but you can easily handcut some triangles or use a square punch and cut along the diagonal line.
Using multiple small shapes on my layout was a good way to try out a new technique. I decided to use the resist technique with heat embossing and watercolors. I used some of the Technique Tuesday and Lawn Fawn stamps and watercolors for a few of the triangles. Mist would also work well if you don't have watercolors on hand.
For the rest of the triangles, I picked out some summery colors of patterned paper. A 6x6 pad or scraps of paper would work well for cutting out these small shapes. For extra texture and detail, I used a Prima stencil and a craft knife to cut out smaller triangles in the background, backing them with washi tape.
I used similar techniques for the card, but decided to use the Prima stencil to fill in random triangles with watercolors instead of cutting them out.
Thanks for taking a look!
CHALLENGE: Use triangles on your layout or card! You can incorporate triangle patterned paper or embellishments, or make triangles a bigger part of your design. Looking forward to seeing your triangle projects!
