Today I finished a scrapbook page. This page is for the week's Scrapbook Variety Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Here are the directions that Peggy listed on SCS:
SBVC03 Eyelet Doodling 11.23.07

How about a cool technique this week? It's called eyelet doodling. Here's what you'll need:

2 pieces cardstock, with high contrast
hole punches in various sizes, 2 is okay - 3 is better

Step 1: Draw a doodle in pencil, lightly (or stamp on the back of your paper with a doodle stamp). It can be as simple or elaborate as you'd like. You can always practice on scraps, then trace your design on your good paper.

Step 2: With the largest hole punch, randomly punch large holes in your design.

Step 3: With the middle sized hole punch, punch holes in your design.

Step 4: With the smallest hole punch, finish putting holes in your design.

Step 5: Erase the remaining pencil lines, LIGHTLY, so as not to tear your paper.

Step 6: Take your coordinating cardstock and place behind your punched design.

TIP: Try not to punch the holes TOO closely, but spaced about evenly apart for the best result.

This was such a fun technique! The color combination was the week's combo on Big Picture Scrapbooking and the sketch is the week's sketch on Pencillines. How fun!

Thanks for looking!
