About Me

From School Teaching to Art and Craft Representative I have learned that I love to teach Art & Craft and see the joy that discovering their creativity brings to people's faces. I live in Queensland Australia & love the laid back lifestyle and the crazy Aussie sense of humour.

I share my art and craft adventures, products and knowledge on my blogs creativedoodlingwithjudy.blogspot.com & celticknotswithjudy.blogspot.com

My favourite trend? Teaching those who think they have no artistic or creative ability to discover they have.

Alphabet Series Pattern - L

"This post is bought to you by the letter L"
 
I have decided to make some cards using the letters from my 3 Flower Alphabet in my book "Creative Doodling with Judy A 2 Z".
 
I have used the letter L Pattern to doodle the letter L on this card. The paper I used was from Kaisercraft  in a 16.5cm or 6 1/2" Paper Pad called Twig & Berry which I bought a long time ago.   I also added some grass at the bottom with a Sakura Pigma Micron.  The flowers were coloured with Kaszazz Markers. The card works well I think because of the direction I have placed the stripes.
 
To make the card cut striped paper to cover about 1/3rd of the card lining it up against the right edge of the card with the stripes going across. I cut a matching piece of decorative paper in a square. The sides of the square are the height of the card. I cut a black piece of card to match the card itself 7mm or 1/4" smaller than the decorative square.
 
I glued the black square to the decorative square of paper and glued the Letter L ( from my 3 Flower Alphabet which I have doodled, coloured and cut a 2mm or 1/16th" border around) on top on the diagonal. 
 
I then glued the square on the edge of the striped paper on the diagonal so that the opposite corners of the square touched the top and bottom of the card.
