Techniques Book

Had a lovely morning yesterday with Isabelle and the girls.....we used various techniques to decorate smooth cardstock using ranger products. FABTASTIC it was too...I did a couple more pages last night, covered the beer mats and then bound.

Jam ATC Swap

Fisrt time I have ever done a collaborative ATC....bit worried about it initially as to how much to leave enough room for the next person to add something. Anyway, this is the end result from 2 of my original backgrounds.

The pink one was alcohol inks on a silver metallic card. Dansmum stamped it, embossed it, sakura glazed it, added gems & star. Chicken Licken completed it with ribbon& fibres. The end result is great

The autumnal one was a brayered background. Dansmum stamped, added rafia and he title.Chicken Licken add the fibres and burnished leaves. The end result is lovely too

Thanks ladies xx

My Circle Journey using one stamp only. I bought the heart stamp specifically. The cover is painted with dabbers, bit of utee and I have stamped the image onto acetate.

(I have subsequently bound it properly and tied ribbons on)

For my entry inside (no you cant see it yet!!) I was going to use it as a "body" but then changed my mind and did something else using a soldering will have to wait and see!! LOL

Choosing a stamp was hard...I hope you are able to come up with something different each time...
