Did you miss me? I’ve been very good about blogging every day but yesterday I had a very very (all too rare) family day off at Earl’s Court for the Hyper Japan show. Regardless of what *I* thought, the important thing is DD had a GREAT time.
I have been trying to learn a few new skills and that informs the designs for my printables today. I am playing with blending and colour adjustments and all manner of things I have never tried before. I’ll let the download statistics tell me if they are a success or simply too OUT THERE for most people. There are two downloads. The first has all of these cards.
Oddly, for me anyway, they are PURE FILLER cards – no text, nothing, just pattern and colour. Grab them here.
Just because they are filler cards doesn’t mean they are one-use only. The can be cut, for example, to make tabs or photo adornments.
Just a few of the tools you can use. And they look quite cute cut like that
The really shaped ones, stuck back to back on the edge of a page, would make quite colourful tabs – I don’t have a tab punch but would 3 x 4 be enough to punch one? Do tell….
There is another set here. I split them because I guess I thought people might like the first set a lot more than this one – it’s a bit different, and perhaps not something that would work with a huge number of other printables, I just don’t know. But I thought it best not to force you to take THIS set if you liked and wanted the OTHER one by bundling them into one PDF.
I really like the base pattern and the colour play came up with what I think are some pretty nifty alternative versions.
I figured since I made them I would share them. But I’d be curious to hear if this sort of thing appeals to you or not.
In any case I did learn quite a lot in the process so for me it was a WIN, even if no one but me actually likes them. Personally I think they would look very cool as fabric, but that is a play for when I am sewing obsessed. And I might have a go at some sort of card using them, not sure – either that or ATCs. I still have that pile of Creative Palette prints kicking around on my desk so that might prompt an ATC making day – but I really, really, need to swap them if I make them. I am SO BAD at that. Off to check out the ATC Trail thread on UKS…
