Fun Thing #1: Sticker Art
My first little project, making stickers. I love stickers. That was my childhood indulgence along with Sanrio(Hello Kitty). The fact that contact paper is adhesive, I suppose makes it the adult version of this indulgence.
These were my supplies: woodgrain contact paper, an xacto knife + cutting surface, a canvas board or just cardboard, selection of interesting magazine cut outs, pencil, and some tape.
This is how I did it: (1.) I laid my contact paper backside up and taped down my cutouts. (2.) Using my x-acto knife, I cut out my shapes and taddah.. stickers! (3.)To make the collage portion, I added a horizon line using my lightest and darkest contact paper and then laid down the rest. After a few layouts, I found this one and commited by stickin' it down. There are so many variations to supplies and trouble shooting so please feel free to contact us with any questions.
I might need to meditate a little bit more on buddah in the summer scene, maybe a few more falling philodendron, but there you have it - sticker art! Click here for a few more samples.
