Build A Scene Tutorial: Home Sweet HOME

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Good morning Crafty Friends,

Today, I am sharing with you a tutorial on how to "build a scene." Creating scenes with dies is a wonderful way to challenge yourself creatively and get the most from your die collection. I enjoy designing scenes, because it provides a wonderful opportunity to play with dimension, layers and shapes. Sometimes, what I envision works out perfectly. Other times, well let’s not discuss the other times…  In the case of the card I am sharing with you today, I created it with my husband in mind. As an active duty service member, my husband is called away for work. However, even with the distance between us, no matter where he is and where the children and I are, we are sleeping underneath the same heavenly stars. And in that regard, we are home and together, if only in our dreams.
