Dimensional Art Make it Now projects

Have you checked out the Cricut Make it Now projects lately?  If you haven't, you're really missing out on some fantastic projects.

Here's two that I've completed this week.

First up was the Earth Fairy Garden dimensional project.

I sized it to be 8" x 8" square and placed it in an 8x8 photo frame.

Here's the link to the project. https://us.cricut.com/design/#/landing/project-detail/10364

The second project is another dimensional scene called Water Fairy.

Again, I placed it in an 8x8 photo frame. (For this photo I left the glass off so I didn't have any glare.)

Here's the link to that project: https://us.cricut.com/design/#/landing/project-detail/10365

The frames are from Kmart (Australia) and only cost $6.  And because I'm a Cricut Access subscriber these were very inexpensive gifts. I have two more that I still want to make this week. They'll be gifts for my two Great Nieces.

If only these sorts of projects had been around when my daughter was little...

I'm kind of wishing I'd made them bigger now so I could have put them in a 12x12 shadow box.

A little trick that helped me work out how to assemble the layers was to open the project in two browser tabs. In the second tab I ungrouped the layers and fanned them out. Then once I had cut a layer from the first tab, I selected it in the second tab and moved it further down on the screen. That helped me keep track of what I had cut and which order they should be in.

And, if you're going to use different colours of cardstock to those that are in the project, I find it's a good idea to click on that layer in the layers panel and select a different colour from the palette. 

Happy crafting!  ♥
