Hello everyone. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a home décor piece created with one of the new We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill Freestyle Pens. These pens are amazing! Easy to use and very versatile. I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about this assignment. I’m not very good at drawing free-hand and my stash of stencils didn’t include a big, cursive quote that I could trace and “color” with foil. Then I came across a cut file I had been saving for a while. I loved the font and the design, and I thought it would look good enlarged to fit a 12×12 cardstock.
Here it is:
I apologize if I don’t have a full, frontal picture of the project. I wanted to show the beautiful gold foil on the orange cardstock, and this was the best way to do it 😉
I started by cutting the design with my electronic die cutting machine. As I mentioned above, I enlarged the quote to fit a 12×12 paper. I then layered the cardstock, a sheet of 12×12 gold foil, and my cut file on top.
I secured the bottom paper to my work table with the Foil Quill Placement Tape and did the same with the cut file. You want to make sure there is no shifting, so to obtain a clean design.
I used the Foil Quill Freestyle Bold Tip Pen, as the negative space of the cut file was pretty big – another option would be the Calligraphy Tip Pen; it has a wide tip and can help cut down on time.
For the little pieces inside the letters, I just kept them in place with my fingers and went around them with the pen. This is what made the process a bit long, but it was totally worth it in the end.
Once I was done with the quote, I picked a rose gold colored foil sheet from the Foil Quill Flamingo assorted pack and, using the same cut file, I added more shiny dots around the words.
I finished my project with lots of flowers from the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection and pom pom ribbon along the top and bottom edges of the paper.
I hope this has given you some more ideas on how to use the amazing Foil Quill Freestyle Pens. Thank you for stopping by.
