After having shown the cover, here are 2 of the pages I have made for my 7x5" sampler book.
I will be teaching these techniques next month so wanted to get a few examples of what can be done with them.
The Simon Says Stamp joint challenge team hop asks for a Holiday themed something so I made the first one with that in mind using the Water-stamping technique with Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky and Broken China Distress Inks and a Hampton Art swirl stamp. Then raided my draw for a few bits: Alcohol-inked an old peel-off and metal snowman, who then got stuck on to white-core card and sanded and scraped within an inch of his life. Used more peel-offs as masks to the Distress inks and then slopped a lot of glitter glue over it (More than intended as the nozzle shot out at one point!) and pressed a piece of hessian in to that before sticking the snowman on 3D foam.
Compendium of Curiosities challenge on Linda's L3 blog so this is a bit of a catch-up too. And this week's challenge - #14 already ! - is Masking as per p58 of Tim Holtz's book so there's a bit of that there and even more here:
AND, I have a place on Tim's workshop at the UK PaperArtsy event in February: I shall be learning from the master himself and meeting lots of blogging buddies: I am sooooooo excited!
