EyeConnect Crafts DT Badge

Eye Connect Crafts make unique chipboard totems and lace-ups from recycled materials.  They are precision cut and a joy to work with.  Seriously, well made.

Apparently, I am a little in love with this image of a dissected frog!  I have used it several times.  Probably more in the future as well!

This started as a dissected tray with a frog and morphed into a mixed media wall art piece.  I love it and cannot wait to hang it up!


 

Putting the image on chipboard pieces:

  1. Scan chipboard frog pieces into computer.
  2. Move the image(s) of chipboard frog pieces into Silhouette Studio.  Make sure the image is set to 100%.
  3. Trace each piece and make the pieces separate.  This is so you can work with individual pieces later.
  4. Merge the photo you want to on the chipboard into the file.
  5. Size the photo to the images of the chip board.
  6. Copy/paste one of the sized photos, one for each piece of chipboard.
  7. Place each piece of the chipboard over the area on the photo you want to have on the chipboard.  Using merge>intersect, merge the chipboard piece and the image.
  8. Repeat for each piece.
  9. Print and cut all the pieces.
  10. Glue images onto the appropriate chipboard.

  6. Anatomically correct and bold frog – Maybe that explains why Evil Froggie has been quiet over at Dreaming In Darkness – you’ve dissected him!
