|First of all, thanks Dini, for the tutorial! I'd done batik resist, but never tried layering the images. I started out putting water and Sage Green on the paper and dried it. Then, I stamped 2 trees on either side and clear embossed. More water and Shabby Shutters. I stamped 2 more trees and a few of the 'background trees' and clear embossed. More water, peeled paint. A few more tops of trees and clear embossing. Last color was the Pine needles. As soon as I dried it, I ironed off the powder, stuck a Tim Holtz mirrored star and a label with the sentiment. I tried adding a ribbon and some other stuff...even an extra mat...and it didn't work. So, for once, I left well enough alone. And yes...this very well could be one of those 'end of the world' signs, because we know I am NEVER one to keep it simple! HAH! ;)|
At 45, I picked up my first stamp and that was it: Now, I can throw the word ‘ephemera’ around with confidence, yet struggle with inappropriate feelings for chipboard. I'm not very polished and I'm still trying to get the hang of 'winning friends and influencing people', but for some crazy reason, this papercraft thing and I FIT! My kids are covered with glitter, my husband wonders how you injure yourself with Stickles, but we all agree on this: I'm a MUCH better person when I'm here!
