DAY 3 - Inked Backgrounds
I had some trouble with the techniques on this one. I have 11 front panels in the trash. The gesso really was a tough one, my first attempt the gesso pulled up a layer of paper off my panel when I pulled the stamp away...I had to double check the jar to make sure it was gesso and not some glue. That was a fun stamp cleaning session. No baby wipe and run...
Day 4 - Adding texture
This was so far my favorite day, but I have yet to check out Day's 5 and 6.
This was all about adding texture, and I loved all the examples and loved working on all the cards.
The sewing was kind of fun and relaxing. I laid the big heart from SSS's Chalkboard love onto a white panel and took my piercer and punched holes around it. Then I strung embroidery floss (3 strands) around the holes in random order...meaining sometimes I hit a hole twice or more.
My most favorite technique of the day and so far the class used my two favorite techiniques, water colors and embossing paste.
Thanks for stopping!
