Good Monday Morning OA fans! Lexi here today to bring you a negative/positive challenge. What do I mean by that? You know how when you punch a shape you have the positive shape you have punched out, but also the negative image with the missing piece? All right then...let's use both pieces on the same layout. Wouldn't our grandmother's be so proud we weren't wasting anything? :)
On the layout below I used my Silhouette to cut out a star background. There actually wasn't a star background shape I liked so I made my own by filling a background. Every cowboy sheriff needs lots of stars, right? After putting the star background down I took a few of the stars that were cut out and flipped them over, filling up a few spaces. Simple, and a little more fun with the burst of blue color against the wood grain.
My littlest is in cowboy wear at least once a week and on this day was waiting for bad guys in some weeds. You never know when they might appear. The "sneaky" title was also cut with the silhouette. I used some kraft cardstock so the title would blend in too. See..sneaky ;)
Of course, you don't need a die cut machine for this particular challenge. Any punch will do.
Have you ever tried this? There's a link to our flickr group on the top left of the blog if you liked to share! It's a nice challenge and as an added bonus, you aren't wasting anything!
Thanks for joining me on the blog and enjoy your Monday!
