    Która wygląda najlepiej? Płytki PCA a Pergamano. ,,The secrets of Parchment craft”. #8

    Welcome to the next episode. Almost every person dealing with parchment craft at some point wants to start doing lace. Many of you probably already can guess on what grids were done these lace. The smaller ones were made on Fine FlexiDuo Grids and the larger ones on Bold. In turn, diagonal fine, straight fine and diagonal bold and straight bold. We see a different size and appearance of laces made on fine and bold grids. But do we know exactly, what is the difference between these grids? I have two different projects here.

    Embossing dla początkujących. Lekcja 3 cz 2. ,,The secrets of Parchment craft”. #7.

    In the second part of our lesson, we will make a simple card. And this is where we can apply our new skill of making dots. We tape the parchment paper to our pattern.

    Welcome to another embossing lesson. Today we will start with our strip again. Now let’s do another layer of embossing, again with slightly smaller balls. This time we do embossing only on half of the previous layer. We can also emboss in both rows. We select the right size of the tool for each element. The last elements we can make with the same balls as before, which is the smallest. Let’s do an additional layer on the second row using the biggest ball. This will make our embossing smoother.
