New Horizons Scenes

These scenes make me think back to when I was a teenager... Whew I wrote that out and wondered if I'm old enough to say "think back" or does that make me sound older than I am? lol But it reminds me when I would paint with my watercolours to create landscape scenes. I haven't made a watercolour painting in a long time. So when I spied the New Horizon designer series paper I knew it was being added to my collection. Now that I have it I almost don't want to use it! It's so pretty!
Since I love the pages so much I thought I would make a few wall hangings. They would be great to hang on the wall but they haven't made it up onto the wall in my office yet! Trying to decide if I should hang them up with a piece of Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon or try to find a picture frame to put them into. Which would you do?
This second scene makes me think of sand dunes in New Brunswick at Kouchibouguac National Park. The dark green area between the fence and the trees & hill looks like water reflecting the trees. On both of these scenes there is very little stamping. The main pieces were die cut using the Horizon dies, some coordinating cardstock and the Adhesive Sheets. Adhesive Sheets are essential when die cutting shapes that have thin pieces like the fence pieces. When assembling a project my favourite adhesive is the Multipurpose Liquid glue but putting that onto a small area I find that it still gets everywhere! Add the Adhesive Sheet to the backside of the cardstock before die-cutting, when ready to put onto your project just remove the protective backing and stick to your project. Adhesive Sheets work well for punched images as well. 



Interested to see how these were assembled? This video was filmed during Satampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration so please note that promotion was over on February 28, 2022.
