With quilts being all the craze right now I thought I'd try my hand at quilting with paper.
My first page, 'Happy Day' using the Childish Things collection is what I call landscape quilting where I designed a structured background as the base for my page. To secure the loose pieces of shaped patterned paper before stitching, I used the E-Z dots repositionable runner. This allowed me to adjust the paper placement as I stitched them making sure they lined up perfectly. To make my little blue starry clouds, I used the Childish Things filter embellishments but needed to strengthen them. I solved this problem by covering a piece of cardstock with Power Tape with Dispenser, then pressed the filters on top before cutting out the x2 cloud shapes.
When assembling my page I made use of tons of 3D Foam squares, layering them in different heights to create interest to my page.
For my next page, 'Childhood Up's & Down's', also using the Childish Things collection , I used my quilted triangles of patterned paper laid in vertical rows to give the overall feeling of up & down movement. Again I the E-Z dots repositionable runner was great to secure the paper pieces, enabling me to shift & nudge them until they were perfectly spaced, before machine stitching in place. My quilted background became the perfect base for my page. I used the different directions of the 'arrows' to help my title feel like it is going up & down.
Again I used plenty of 3D Foam squares to raise my elements off the page, doubling up sometimes for extra height.
