Ever since I bought my Silhouette Cameo, I have wanted to draw a zentangle, then make a cutting file with it. So, last week, I did that- go me! I cut a small card-sized one in black, and a larger one in green. The green one is for using with my gelli plate, which I've done, and it's no longer green. It's more multi-coloured now :) That will be a post another day.
Today, while working on a tutorial for Saturday, I decided to use the black one.
It's a large piece to glue down, and I knew my glue pen would take 'forever' so I decided to sponge the glue onto the piece.
It worked perfectly. A nice even coat of glue, but not so thick it seeps under the edges.
The key is, after picking up glue with the sponge, dab it onto the acrylic block a few times to spread and smooth it out, then dab onto the cardstock.
I stamped and matted 'My friend', another great Quietfire Design stamp, glued it down, and DONE!
Loads of satisfaction with this project.
Have a wonderful day- get in a creative work-out- and thank you for stopping by!
Hi I love your creation,Is there any chance you will be selling your cut file? This is a hint I got from Kim Bell,Buy and little bottle from an art store it has a tiny little opening that has a little pin that goes down inside the opening that keeps it clear of glue when you aren't using it.Kim said the only glue that works is SoBo I got mine at Michaels .I couldn't believe it worked so good on tiny this we have to glue,and you don't get glue on everythingor on myself if you need a picture of the bottle just email me and I will send a picture.my email is email@example.comReplyDelete
Thanks Jocelan. I have a fine tip glue bottle as well, and I like it for lots of things, but for this cut, I needed faster coverage. I'd be happy to just give you the cut file. Let me know, and I'll send it to you.Delete
