One Day Special Shows continue on Hochanda today at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you can join me. I will try to show as many weaves as I can throughout the day.
Here's today's card -
So, for the weave on this one, I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Striped Weaving Die once out of Aqua, Lilac, Custard and Sky Blue Card. I glued the Custard one to the Sky Blue one, offsetting it to fill in the gaps. I glued the Lilac one to the Aqua one, again offsetting it to fill in the gaps. The resulting die cuts then have 2 Lilac then 2 Aqua then 2 Lilac then 2 Aqua and so on and the other has 2 Custard, 2 Sky Blue, 2 Custard, 2 Sky Blue and so on. For this weave, I kept them all in the order they were lying.
I used the Custard/Sky Blue one as the base. I wove 2 strips from the Aqua/Lilac one through it - under 2, over 2, under 2, over 2 and so on to the end. Keeping the strips in order, I wove the next 2 Lilac/Aqua Strips over 2, under 2, over 2, under 2 and so on till the end. I repeated these 2 rows until the whole piece was completely woven.
Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B. I cut a thinners frame out of Custard Card using dies #2 and #3 from the same set and glued the 2 frames together. I added the frame to my woven background using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess. I matted onto Lilac and then Sky Blue Card.
Sue's Happy Birthday Circle Die Set out of the same 4 colours of card as shown.
Sue's Star Flower Cluster Die Set out of Lilac, Sky Blue and Custard Card and added 5mm White Pearls to the centre of the flowers.
8mm White Pearl to each corner of the frame.
