Art 'n Soul's Artist of the Month
|by Jane Townsend|
|When Jane was traveling in the Far|
East, she had her 'chop' made into
a stamp. Isn't that cool? I really
wish Susie and I had done that when we
were in Japan a few years ago.
|Marj is applying the Hawaiian soap to the backside of the|
Dreamweaver Stencil so that the adhesive will not stick
to the stencil when layered onto the exposed
side of the Be Creative Tape sheet (special 2-sided adhesive).
|This is after the Ultra Fine Glitter from|
Elizabeth Craft Designs has been applied and burnished
to the exposed adhesive areas.
- Wednesday, August 7 All Day -- Dianne will continue to demonstrate how easy and fun it is to zentangle with Dreamweaver Stencils.
- Thursday, August 8, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. --
- Saturday, August 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. -- Lynell Harlow, owner and designer of Dreamweaver Stencils will be at Art 'n Soul to demonstrate the various techniques she uses with Dreamweaver Stencils. An extra bonus is that she also is bringing her husband, Wayne! He's the one who started zentangling inside the Dreamweaver Stencils and Wayne will be at Art 'n Soul to demonstrate how he zentangles his way with Dreamweaver! And I know both will be more than happy to answer questions you might have about the stencils, dies and techniques!
A fun Christmas card from Impression Obsession's blog that I think several of you will like!
- Stamped Cover-A-Card Snowflakes 3 times for 3 different looks:
- First with Memento Summer Sky on white cardstock (background behind snow globe).
- Second and third time with VersaMark (Emboss Resist) on white cardstock, clear embossing powder, heat embossed, then brayered with Summer Sky (first well inked and the second much lighter for the snow globe).
- Cut white cardstock 5.25X5.25" for base, 5.0X5.0" of darker emboss resist cardstock, cut 4.5"X4.5" of blue snowflake on white background.
- Mounted the dark snowflake emboss resist on the white cardstock.
- Did the die cut for the Snow Globe from the lighter Emboss Resist and the base from some leftover Bazzill Dotted Swiss brown cardstock.
- Lined up the "globe" on the lighter Emboss Resist with the die cut and the die and traced around it. Die cut the hole for the Shake-It Pouch on the lighter Emboss Resist.
- Did the following die cuts from:
- Sm Deer - Spica At You Chocolate pen added to antlers and hooves.
- Fir Tree (smallest tree) - from green remnant cardstock.
- Sm Snowflake Set - used the two smallest with Sticky Paper and Glitter. One was used as "the Christmas star"and yellow glitter.
- the Snow Globe set - the label - from the Summer Sky snowflakes on white cardstock. The sentiment "Merry Christmas" is from clear set Sentiments II stamped with Momento Rich Cocoa.
- All but the label were mounted to the lighter Emboss Resist with Glossy Accents and a needle-nose applicator.
- Lined up the blue snowflake on white cardstock (with the hole cut out) and traced the circle where the pouch would be mounted.
- Mounted light emboss resist with your die cut images over the traced circle.
- Placed some beads, but Flower Soft, etc. can also be used inside.
- Removed the adhesive protector from around the Shake-It Pouch and placed it over the images and beads.
- Mounted the blue snowflake on white cardstock over the pouch, followed by the globe base.
- Mounted the sentiment, the bow, a little more glitter here and there and the heart stickers.
