We’ve got a little retrospective of a tutorial today, for YouTube Tuesday. It’s a really sweet project using one of Barbara’s wedding photographs, framed with parchment patterns designed using our exquisite Queen Mary Lace Duet Groovi Plate/Grid. Check it out by clicking below.
As usual, you can get everything you need to create this stunning little design. Steve, who regulates the offers has even put the whole range of Queen Lace Grid Duet Plates on sale too – just for the week – so you can pick and choose which ones you’d like to use. Any of them would be suitable for this project!
Oh yeah, and just in case you don’t know what a Grid Duet is (the name doesn’t make it obvious to a novice), well let me explain. The essential techniques in parchment craft are embossing and perforating. Groovi PLATES contain etched grooves. These grooves let you emboss i.e. not going all the way through the parchment. Groovi GRIDS are series’ of drilled holes that allow you to perforate (or pierce) all the way through the parchment making little holes in a pattern. Perforating is necessary for snipping. GRID DUETS combine both grooves and holes, combined in pre-designed patterns, that you can more quickly and easily and accurately combine both techniques!
Why not check out this selection of artwork using the Grid Duets for size and tell me it’s not amazing!
And, since there is a bit of a wedding theme in the video, here’s a little something that I noticed sitting in my home “office”. 7 years and still not itchy!
Well, that’ll do from me.
Clarity matters. It really does.
