It all began with a bargain buy from our Graphic Designer Mandy. We liked it, but since we were hanging it up in our new Omaha offices, we wanted it to say "AccuCut."
So here is my spin on making it say "AccuCut!"
I cut out two of each of the different sized butterflies, Butterfly #8 and Butterfly #9 and adhered them together with E6000 adhesive. I did this just in the centers so that I could bend them and manipulate them for dimension. Then I tied black cording around the centers of each butterfly and adhered them onto the canvas with the E6000 adhesive.
These fun dimensional flowers are created using two of the smallest flower on the Flower #29 die. I adhered the two flowers together in the middle again using E6000 adhesive then punched a small hole through the middle and placed brads through. They are adhered to the canvas again using the E6000.
I cut a Bird #10 and my favorite flourishes of all time, Flourishes #3. Adheres those to the canvas using the E6000 adhesive again but didn't adhere the ends of the flourishes or the birds wings down. It gives some really fun dimension when you pull them up and toward you away from the canvas.
Lasr I cut out two of the second to largest flowers on Flower #29 and used Flourishes #4 to create this last scene on the canvas. Once again I used a brad throught the middle and adhered just the ends of the flourishes so that they could be pulled back to add more dimension.
Repurposing is all the rage and I can definately see why. Have you ever repurposed something or found something ordinary and added you extrodinary touch to it? Thanks for letting me share my AccuCut Art with you.
