3D Art

Like I mentioned in my previous post; I am going to keep you busy this coming year. I thought it was a nice idea to start out with the 3D craft. That way you can make some really original greeting cards ahead of time for the upcoming Birthdays and Holidays.

3D stands for three dimensional and you can use any picture or image you can find, as long as you keep in mind that you will need several identical images for an art project like this.

I used three of the same images. You start out by cutting out the first image and glue it on a background; this can be card/craft paper, CDs, wood or anything else you prefer.

Picture in your mind the next part that would be coming forward and cut it out. To get the depth in the project, I used clear silicone. Put a few dabs on the back of the second part and carefully place it on top of the first one. Repeat this step as often as you like with cut out images that keep getting smaller.

It is a lot easier to buy images which are specifically printed for this 3D craft; you don't have to worry about what part to cut out and what not.

Yes, it is tedious work, but the result is very rewarding. It does put things in perspective! :-)
