I started off by making only one of these watercolor typography art pieces, but then I got instantly hooked.  I made three of them so far and I am sharing the tutorial of how I made them using my Silhouette Curio over on the Make It & Love It blog.  Find the full tutorial HERE!

Gold Foil Fall Art & Silhouette Promotion

Gold Foil Autumn Wall ArtA few weeks ago I tried out the Silhouette brand printable gold foil for the first time.  I didn’t print anything on it, just cut it out.  I loved it! It has adhesive on the backside and it is super shiny! I used it to make  borders on some invitations that I had made and so I had some spots on each sheet that I wanted to put to use.

Silhouette PixScan MatI put the foil on my PixScan mat (which I didn’t think I would like as much as I do!) and opened up my shape. I used the Autumn shape and cut it out on two different pieces of my used gold foil.  Once I had the two Autumn words cut out I needed to get them onto my white card stock.  I wanted them to be centered and straight so I made a paper guide.

Paper Guide

I taped the guide onto my white card stock and then laid the gold letters down by hand.  I took the guide and was left with a perfect gold foil Autumn art.
