And the latest issue of The Stampers’ Sampler arrived with a feature in the ‘Deconstructed Stamping’ department! It features step by step pictures and some instruction for creating a journal page that can be found on pages, 38-40.
this is the prototype for the Caged Heart ATC I will be teaching at ZNE’s ConvenZioNE at the end of the month. I wanted to include as many techniques as possible in the one hour per class time-table and this demonstrates the use of acrylics with glazing medium, stamping, stenciling, an image transfer method that is foolproof, water soluble graphite pencil with a blending medium, Pitt pen detail, dip-dot heart, journaling, and shading/highlighting with charcoal.
I have listed this one for sale in my etsy shop. The theme comes from an ATC that was published in Cloth, Paper, Scissors July ’09.
It’s coming up soon! ZNE’s ConvenZioNE has opened up it’s class registration. I am very excited to be going and I even get to teach a little make and take, how fun is that? I will be sharing my little ‘Caged Heart’ ATC that was published in Cloth, Paper, Scissors last year. I have signed up to take classes from Chrysti Hydeck, and Brandie Butcher-Isley. To see all of the available classes click on the title to this post.
Today is one of those rainy, windy, don’t want to leave the house kind of days. The kind where you want to cuddle up in your cozy nest and work in your journal, read a good book, or maybe get ambitious and make some cookies. I’m doing all of those things as well as finishing off this new piece for my etsy shop.
I have also added custom cut mats to all of my fine art prints so that they are easy to pop into an 8×10 frame with no worries about have a special mat cut. I’m offering the same type of mattes in a 5×7 size for my ATC/ACEO’s also, making them great for framing.
Hope you have some quiet, nesting time today~enjoy
