Challenge 32 - Paper Poking


Ok, I could not come up with anything more clever or catchy. ;) My challenge to you this week is to use a needle to poke holes into your paper. Do it freehand, do it with a sewing machine... however you like. The result is a subtle design element that is fun and FREE.

Here is what the team did:

JEN: For my layout, I made a spiderweb with poked holes. First, I drew my web design lightly with a pencil on the cardstock. I then sewed over the lines with my sewing machine, which was not loaded with any thread. Lastly, I erased the lines. I have to say, it was really fun!

PAMELA: Pamela punched one big circle, then went back and forth from the 1st hole to the 15th, to the hole to the right of the 1st, to the hole to the left of the 15th, and repeated from there. Try it!

DEBORAH: Deborah stamped onto a scrap of vellum paper and used that as a pattern to poke holes for her snowflakes.

PALOMA: Paloma punched holes into circle rings, and she further separated the individual words with punched lines.

This challenge is being hosted my, a monthly kit club. The owner, Sandi, has graciously agreed to provide the RAK for this one - an October kit of goodies.

To take a look, go here: I used one of the October kits to make my "Widow" layout.

You have 2 weeks.... submissions are due on Sunday, November 30th at midnight. Have fun!
