October's Technique Class

Well, October is almost over, and I'm just now posting what we did in our techniques class. Our next class is Friday, November 9 at 7:00 p.m. This is held in Terrell but if that's too far for you, I would love to come to your house and do this class for you and your friends. Cost of the class is $10 but if you host it, it's FREE for you. I have a great group of ladies in Terrell but I would love to come to your house and do the same thing with you and your friends.

This past class was a very messy class as we played with bleach, shaving cream and watercolor crayons. This was fun because you never know who each card is going to turn out.

Technique #1 - Stamping With Bleach

Stamp Set: Polka Dots & Paisley
Paper: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Gable Green, Whispering White
Ink: Night of Navy, Gable Green
Accessories: French Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, bleach

This is the technique that got the most cool factor. The question was asked if the bleach would ruin your stamps. I'm sure over time it would but immediately after we were done, I rinsed with water and then cleaned with the stamp and mist.

Technique #2 - Shaving Cream

Stamp Set: Eat Cake
Paper: Certainly Celery, Almost Amythest, Whispering White
Ink: Certainly Celery stamp pad, Regal Rose and Almost Amythest markers, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amythest, and Mellow Moss reinkers
Accessories: Dimensionals, Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, shaving cream

This was also cool because everybody's background came out different. It was very messy but it was also so much fun to create. I actually made up some birthday cards using this technique. What fun!!!

Technique #3 - Watercolor Crayons

Stamp Set: Give Thanks
Paper: Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla
Ink: More Mustard, Not Quite Navy, Timber Stazon, Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons
Accessories: Aquapainters, Linen Thread

Not much to this...very plain and simple.

I do hope that you will be able to join us for the next class. I'm working on the techniques now and you'll soon find out what we will be doing. If you have any questions about these techniques, don't hesitate to email me.

As always, thanks for looking!
