Good Morning! Susie with you today sharing a
tutorial for making my 8x8 Hybrid wall hanging:
The kit with which I am working is the Sweet Flower Mega Kit which was released yesterday and is on sale at JessicaSprague through the weekend. It is a super sweet kit with soft papers, so many great elements and TWO alphas! A totally awesome value!
I set up an 8x8 background in Photoshop Elements and completely built my layout as if I were making a fully digital layout. This is how it looked before printing it out on an 8.5x11 piece of textured cardstock.
I could have just added a photo to the layout and called it done, but I really wanted to add dimension and also be able to change out photos as I got new ones of our precious granddaughter, Izzy.
I mounted this layout to a sturdy 8x8 piece of chipboard and added two small holes on the top corners so I could hang it later. I sanded all the edges before I proceeded to the next step.
My next step was to print the elements I wanted to add onto the top of this layout. At first I thought I wanted to cut out the flower too, but in the end, I opted for another idea. Here's a look at my print file:
I cut out everything except the flower and layered the pieces directly onto my original layout. I used pop dots behind each piece to lift them off my canvas.
I added a paper flower and a brad, pearls and twine to finish off my canvas.
Next I printed the picture I wanted to use and held my breath. YES - it fit perfectly behind the dimensional elements. Now I can change it out whenever I want. No adhesive at all!
I had a blast making this. Digital elements can be used for home decor too! Try it and see.
