Ticket Tutorial!

Hello out there!

Shame on me for not being more consistent with my blogging, but I do have good reason. The day job, of course... Along with planning and shopping for a June wedding! We are also leaving for a Florida family vacation very soon and I have "needed" new sandals, tops, and shorts! (Giggle, giggle).

How about a fun tutorial?

Aren't these tickets just adorable?!!!!!

I love filling my art journals with things like this, but think of all the possibilities! How cute these tickets would be on greeting cards, book marks, packages... Or for giveaways at bridal and baby showers (just number each ticket)! Ooooooooh my brain is packed with ideas for using tickets, tickets, tickets!

Ok. Let us get started!

I do not own a ticket die cut or template. I make my tickets quickly... And manually!

Step one:

Cut paper in 1 inch wide strips. Any paper will do! I chose to use watercolor paper today. I had given the paper a watercolor wash a few days ago, providing some soft color.

Step 2:

Pierce the strips with a paper piercing tool, every 2 inches. If you do not have a scoring board, just draw some lines onto your strips, using a pencil. Pierce with a protective mat beneath your paper.

Step 3:

Using a paper punch, begin punching half holes down your paper strip, top and bottom.

Step 4:

Get creative with your tickets!!!!!

Stamp them, sketch on them, paint, collage, dye on them!

I drew tiny birds on this ticket strip, then added color with watercolor pencils. Oh! I always use a fine tip, black 01 Micron pen for wet media with small detail work.

I do hope that you have a blast with this tutorial and guess what?

Throughout the Summer months I will be providing you with more tutorials! Yes, indeed!

School will soon be out and I'm so very excited to dive into my creative world for the Summer!

Thank you for stopping by! You never need a ticket enter here!!!!!
