S is for Summer with Echo Park & GlueArts

S is for....

Sunshine, Splash, Summer, 


Snowcones, Swimming, Shore.....

Sunsets and more!

We're wrapping up our week long feature of Echo Park Paper's Splash Collection and we're going out with a Cannonball!!!!!!!!!

Designer Patti Milazzo has pulled out all the stops today with her project! It's so amazing...we're truly at a loss for words and bet you'll agree! She was inspired by various crayon art she's seen....we think hers is tops!!

And we're back with our final project from our Guest Glue Girl...Mandy Starner! Love her layout and how she used a beach collection to create a bright, colorful layout that works without the sand!lol

Summer Monogram Sign
GlueArts Designer: Patti Milazzo
Pin It
Designer Tip:  I was inspired by the fun monogram crayon projects that I’ve seen all over the web. In place of crayons, I rolled small pieces of pattern paper and created my own summer themed monogram décor sign for our end of summer celebrations. 


Supplies: 
Glue Arts:
Glue Glider Pro with
1/4 Perma Tac Cartridge Refill - Pro
Mini Adhesive Squares
U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam
Extreme Micro Squares

Echo Park Paper:
Splash Pattern Paper – Diagonal Stripes, Die Cut, Big Waves, Journaling, Whales, Borders, Sunshine, Big Dots, Fish, Mini Stripes, Umbrellas and Big Stripes
Splash Alpha Stickers
Splash Element Stickers

Other: Coordinated cardstock for background


Instructions:
1. Determine what letter you want to use as a monogram and the size of your background paper. Cut many small pieces of pattern paper varying in length and about 2.5” wide giving you plenty of room for overlapping when you roll them.

2. Use a pencil, dowel or other tool to roll your paper pieces around. Secure the paper with a few Mini Adhesive Squares to prevent them from unraveling. Once you have several done, start organizing them loosely on your background to determine where you want to ultimately place each roll. It takes a little time and patience to find the right shape but it comes together quickly once you have most of your rolled pieces prepared.
3. When you have the design set start with the roll at the bottom of your letter and plan to work your way up. Apply a few Extreme Micro Squares where the paper edge is on each roll. Press the roll onto the background. This will further secure the roll from unraveling and adhere it to the background. Now work your way up the letter with each roll. Take your time, it may need some tweaking along the way!

4. Once the monogram letter is complete, embellish on and around it with sticker accents. On the “Just Add Water” sticker, I stacked 3 pieces of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam together to equal the height of the rolled paper. This added extra support to the side that isn’t adhered to the rolled paper.

5. Use additional U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam on the back of word stickers and bubbles for added dimension to complete your project. Enjoy!

Designer Suggestion: Pick any theme for this project – a birthday sign, holiday theme or a child’s initial as décor for their room.
