On my desk today - and skilfully hiding the bulk of the messy bits as I take my photos!!! At the weekend I had fun trying out a couple of products that I want to feature in my next card class. One of them is a blast from my childhood. Did you ever do one of those pictures where you start with a black board and then scratch away at it to reveal the metal beneath? Well this is that with a new lease of life! I had great fun die cutting, scratching, embossing and sanding it as my test samples show! I also had a play with gilding flakes (do not sneeze when you are using them!!!) and top right is a card that I tried different ways of applying the flakes. I had great fun just playing.
Now that I know what the products can do I need to design two cards to teach in my next class. If I have sparked an interest then just to let you know I got the Foil and Flakes from Creative Expressions.
In contrast next to all that glitters is a much more delicate project. I am working on a Graphic 45 layout which I think may end up mounted on to a canvas as I have made two very delicate vines of flowers that definitely won't like being squished into a page protector!!!
Wishing everyone a happy and creative WOYWW and if you have no clue what that means then follow this link to join in the fun.
