Love this sweet Snowman Garland! Jan has the holidays all wrapped up! Please don't forget to visit her blog!
I love snowmen and have quite a collection -- that stays out all year long. I haven't added anything for a couple of years and having an eBrush sure makes is easy to put something together quickly.
This garland will be gracing the living room window and likely will be "hanging out" all year long!
images for your garland (I used an old papercrafting magazine pattern for the snowman and a snowflake from basic shapes in my electronic diecutting machine and software)
eBrush and AD adapter (use the foam cushion hack)
Markers - BIC Mark-Its (black, red, med blue)
Red Glitter Pen, White gel pen
Fabric for knots, cut at 1 1/2 in x 9 in
Embellishments as desired
Xyron - permanent adhesive
wire, fibers or other material for stringing
Stencil material (I used an inkjet transparency)
Because my garland is made from from paper, I wanted the images to be fairly sturdy. Trace your image. In the software, ungroup the image and set aside all of the top pieces. Don't delete as they will be used to create your stencil. I cut the stencil (hat and scarf) and set aside. Cut the base image for your snowman x 4. Repeat for the snowflakes
Run 2 layers of your images through the Xyron and set aside with one more layer that does not have the adhesive.
It's time to get ready to use the eBrush -
Once all your painting and coloring is completed, run the top image through the Xyron and add to the previous layered pieces. Do the same with the snowflakes. Once all your images are completely stacked, using a piercing tool, make a hole on opposite sides of each image and string as desired. Embellish as desired... adding some glitter and gel pen highlights. Don't forget to spray your fabric pieces as well. I used a stencil from one I had on file.
Thanks for dropping by. Please feel free to drop by my blog for additional ideas and projects made using the eBrush. Happy Crafting!
