This class is such a blast and I am learning a ton of new techniques!
I made two examples of the trapped emboss resist technique.
The basic technique is to have a pattern in the base of the resist - you can stamp the pattern in or use pattern paper.
This one I stamped with the brown in using a script stamp by hero arts, then stamped over with a combination of a flower stamp from Close to My Heart and a heart stamp from Stampin' Up - I think I would like to try this again sometime using the same color on the stamp as I use to color the paper afterward. But I do like how this turned out as well.
This one is using patterned paper --- the flower stamp is from Close to My Heart, the patterned paper is Basic Grey, the ink is Tim Holtz (as usual!) The background paper is the unaltered pattern paper.
I signed up for this online class called inspiration show case and today is the first day. She went over 5 resist techniques. Due to schedule limitations I have only done the first technique so far. It is resist on glossy paper. So far the class is AMAZING.
Here is mine - I did a small sample (the square) and a card
I used Bazzill card stock, Tim Holtz ink, Close to My Heart, Time Holtz and hero arts stamps, Versamark ink, clear and white embossing powder.
OK - this blog went on hold as I worked on my new passion of writing. I was unsure if crafting would still play an important part of my life or not.
I am happy to say that I am balancing both at this point. So whether or not any of you are still out there or I am writing this to myself I have decided to "re-open" the blog.
There have been many changes in my life over the last couple of years, including moving and a new job. But here I will focus on all things creative and as much as possible leave the drama where it belongs!
