TUTORIAL TUESDAY AT SHELLY'S IMAGES


Hi there!  Remember Spirograph? I remember Santa bringing me one in the 1960's, and it kept me busy for hours!



You'll be forgiven for thinking that this is the same thing, as it is based on the same principles.

I'd like to share with you a tutorial for a faux technique - don't we just love getting to do something that looks like the real thing, but in a much easier way?  I know I do!

For the real Spirelli you need a notched diecut,  thread and you wind around and around.  You need twelve fingers and simply cannot put it down halfway through. For my Faux Spirelli you need only know how to thread a needle.

Are you ready to learn .... yes?  Well, hop on over to the Shelly's Images blog, where the whole (photo) tutorial is waiting for you.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Creative Challenges, #2, "Anything Goes"
Lollipop Crafts, #68, "Anything Goes"
Make it Monday, #77, "Anything Goes"
The Crazy Challenge, #107, "Use a Die or Punch"
