Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today showing you how to create a layout using the new Foil Quill.
The Foil Quill is truly a game changer and I love that I can use it for a variety of projects, including scrapbook layouts.
The Foil Quill has 3 tips: The fine one is perfect for journaling, the medium for fine lines in general and the thick tip for filling in shapes. Because the tip is like a sketch pen if you want to fill your shapes you will need to work that on your die cutting machine software first.
Here I am using Silhouette Studio and wrote a word with a brush script font.
Using the Emboss tool (marked with a red circle), fill the shape with concentric lines (marked with the blue circle).
You can adjust the spacing of the lines, I used a 0.5 mm spacing for the thick tip of the Foil Quill.
Before sending your project make sure you hit the button “release emboss” otherwise you will not be able to send your design.
For the journaling I used my fine Foil Quill tip and a sketch font called “Golden Rule Sketch” I highly recommend you use sketch fonts with small journaling otherwise your letters are going to turn out bulky.
When I had everything ready I used the tape to hold my foil to the paper and hit send.
My journaling turned out great! The foil looks amazing and you can read it perfectly. I added a few numbers and embellished the bottom part of my layout.
On the bottom, I added a picture and also included the “First week” phrase that I had previously foiled and cut with my Cameo. I didn’t wanted to foil it directly on the paper so I could use some 3d dots and add a few die cuts underneath.
Finally, I foiled a few stars on vellum and added them to my layout. I wanted my stars fully foiled but I didn’t adjust the spacing right, that’s why you can see the lines. I was going to do them again but thought they were pretty that way and left them!
A few more starts on the top part of the layout and I was done!
I love how my layout turned out! The silver foil looks perfect on blue cardstock and it is amazing the detail you can get with the fine tip.
Do you have a Foil Quill? If not you should get one! You can use it for so many things and even the simplest card looks great with foil!
Thanks for joining me and have a great day!
