    Howdie girlfriends!
    We are going to learn how to use your lasso tool to give a more hand cut look to our shapes. I like doing this even for simple strips of paper, I like the home-made look it creates.

    Here is my final page, I used this technique to achieve the hand-cut look on the word art.

    (btw. I apologize for the ups and downs on the audio, I am terribly sick and wanted to make sure that I did the video in case I was not able to be at the chat tomorrow).

    You don't need to be present in the chat to join us in our challenges. Challenges are due March 7th. Finish both of February's AJ challenges posted in the Art Journaling area and your name gets into the drawing for $10 of our monthly sponsor.
