Project Life | Week One title pocket...

Hello Sassy Friends!  It's Leanne here today to share with you a quick and easy tutorial on creating pocket page titles.  This year, instead of just sharing my PL2015 spreads, I thought I'd also share a few basic tutorials about the PL cards I create as part of the process.  What better place to start than with a Week One title pocket card.
 
Step 1. Gather your supplies
 
I have used the following:
 
Yellow Enamel Dots
watercolour paints
"week" clear stamp
sewing maching
 
 
Step 2. Colour the watercolour word


Place the watercolour word on a firm surface. I have used a clear stamp mounting block.  Wet a clean paint brush with water and brush over the word.  Choose three colours from the watercolour paints (I am coordinating with my patterned paper and using the orange/gold/yellow combination). Starting with the deepest colour, paint the top of the letters allowing the water and paint to drag through the watercolour paper.


 
Take the middle colour and apply to the centre of your word, gently blending as you go.  Add more water/paint to get the desired effect you require.

 
Set aside to dry or use a heat gun if you're impatient like me!
 
 
Step 3. Gold embossing with clear stamps
 
Trim the patterned paper to 4"x6".
Ink your clear stamp with VersaMark Watermark ink and stamp image at the lower middle of the patterned paper.
Completely cover the image with gold embossing powder.
 
 
Once the stamped image has been covered, remove excess embossing powder from the patterned paper.  I like to clean up the stubborn flecks of embossing powder with a dry paintbrush, being careful to not touch the actual image.
Heat emboss using your heat gun.
 
 
Step 4. Layering embellishments

 
Using the sun image from the Dear Lizzy ephemera pack and the clear banner sticker from the Amy Tan sticker sheet, find the centre and adhere to the banner to the top of the sun.


Step 5. Placement

Using the Prima Alphas add the week title next to your stamped image - this is line one.
Place the watercolour word above the first line of embellishments, leaving it off centre and allowing the sun/banner embellishment to also fit on line two. Adhere in place.
 
 
Step 6. Stitching
 
Add a single row of stitching directly to the watercolour word, attaching it to the patterned paper 4"x6" card.  I have used white thread.
 
 
Step 7. Ombre enamel dots

Add a trio of small yellow/orange enamel dots to the lower right corner of the card.  Allow the dots to form a triangle and overlap the other embellishments.
 

 
Step 8. Add Colorshine

 
To complete the title pocket card, add a few drops of Heidi Swapp colorshine to the top right corner. Allow to dry before inserting the PL card into its designated PL pocket.
 
 
And here is the completed card!

Join me next week to see how I incorporated it into my PL2015 Week One spread.  Thanks for visiting..x
