This time I stayed true to the silhouette concept and worked in a gradation of blacks and grays. Here is a closeup of the layers. It is composed of three layers, each in its own shade. I created the composition by first scanning a live fern and then using that file to create additional ferns.
I need to get some more paper and try some other color combinations. A gradation of greens is a natural but I also think using the same composition but doing it in vibrant colors would look wonderful in a child's room. As always not enough time to play.
Tutorial to come later this week.
Update: The tutorial is up here at my new sister blog with Silhouette tutorials. The cutting file is available from Silhouette here.
Disclaimer: I am not representing Silhouette however I am working to become a contributing artist for the Silhouette online store. When that process is complete you will be able to buy my Silhouette cutting files through the Silhouette online store. Soon I hope. Stay tuned!
