I was thinking today about what it means to have good fortune. I believe it is aligned with your circumstances, what you are willing to allow, gratitude, and a lot more than I am aware of.

I start with the file. I use Inkscape. A simple way of turning anything I draw, into vectors, then I can use these components to create my design.

These were cut using a brother scan n cut machine.

These are from random kits that I will have in my Etsy shop. The circle is a test cut. I used 140 lb water color paper 9" inches x12 " inches.

I removed them from the cutting mat, and painted them with water color.

After painted them I added doodles and calligraphy.

More fun with my cutting machine.

A few years ago I started playing with Ink scape. I began to make my own colored SVG files. Now I am using them with my cutting machine.

Here is a house design I have been playing with:

These were cut from two of my cutting file collections.

I painted them pink with water color. I had flowers, bird and other elements.

It's fun to lay the pieces out.  Brads and foam tape are my favorites when it comes to attaching the pieces together. I will show you in the next part How I use these to put the house together.
