Masterboard Background Tutorial

The rules are simple :

This sounds like fun! I think I have been making a lot of "master boards" of late, actually, but had no idea they were actually a "thing"! :p

What a great idea! I just learned something new. Let's do this!

I'm not going to sign up for this one... only because I won't have the time for the project, and my "Swap Dashboard" is already pretty full... but THANKS for posting the tutorial links!! I WILL try this technique one of these days!

Ya'll have a GREAT Swap!!

It would be cool to do a series of the same master board for different swaps... you could get at least 4-5 out of one board...

I put my master board on the back of something I was going to throw away... put it all together, and then used my rotary cutter and a thick ATC I have (traced around with cutter,) and now I have 11 ATC foundations:)

And going to make more in other color schemes on some bristol scraps I have...

Margo 04/ 6/2015 #

oooooohhhhhh! Maybe we could trade master board scraps and ATC sized pieces?

Way to GO! Great swap!

Sounds like a fun idea. Maybe make color copies of your board before you cut them up and then you can use the copy in other artwork:)

I just finished cutting up my masterboard into ATC sizes, and I fell in love with it once it was cut up. Will def. have to keep trying this and using it for future crafts :D

I'm so glad you all like the swap !! :) I'm getting ready to post one JUST for the backgrounds per @Margo I'm thinking maybe we'll do a series of color ones. :) What do y'all think ?

JenniferWatsonMcDonald 04/11/2015 #

Then, after that we could do other themes ??
