I wanted to try silver embossing powder from Paper Source and this heavy weight kraft paper I found on sale from 2 dollars for pack of 25 at Joann's.
The combination seemed really strange to me but I love I love the contrast it provides.
|Materials: Prima Travel themes masks, Studio Calico Atmosphere mist, Viva Las Vegas chicken wire stamp, Wood Veneer stars from Studio Calico, silver glitter Thickers from American Crafts. Silver paint stick from Farber-Castell|
Some detail shots:
|Playing with semi transparency-I love common gift wrap tape in layers!|
I love these water droplet embellishments from Sticko for the same reason I love vellum-
lots of detail but not the crowding you get when using color embellishments.
|The Viva Las Vegas chicken wire stamp is amazing!.|
The edges aren't squared up so you can layer it more organically.
You can also order it mounted on wood, unmounted or
foam mounted so it can be attached to an acrylic block.
Tomorrow I teach my first class ever!!!
I'll be leading a "Girl's Night" over at the Paper Source on 75th street and Columbus. We'll be using the Zutter Bind it All to make a birthday card organization book.
I must admit I'm a little scared- 4 students means it should be fairly easy going but I have been reviewing videos and practicing proper binding technique just in case.
GRATUITOUS TODDLER SHOT!
|Check out the new "Jane" lens on the Hipstamatic. |
No strange effects, just the ability to shoot square photos and mix them up with other Hipsta films.
