So this has been in my head lately, along with a lot of others if you surf the scrapbook world of message boards and blogs. One of the new things are vellum speech bubbles witch are totally cool and the vellum is the perfect medium to represent them, well at least in my mind. So tonight I have been playing in Illustrator and making some of my own, because really I would never pay $5 for a smallish pack of them. With the help of my friends I came up with some sayings and played from there. This is what I got ... I'm so excited now to play with these.
AND THEN I started to cut my vellum in my silhouette machine ... hmmmm! It's really thick stuff and I think my new blade is faulty because I was not getting a clean all the way through cut very easy. As you can see from the pictures the letters are giving me fits, with a little more playing I'm pretty sure I can get them clean, or maybe take a little bit more time pulling them apart ... but if I'm honest I like the embossed letter look too ... maybe color it with some markers, possibilities are endless.
