Lisa Lee with Inchie Arts recommends that you never throw out a piece of work you've started with; and then didn't know what the next steps should be because you're not happy with it. In this posting, she shows how to use colors and water to achieve a look you'll like.

One of the new products at Art 'n Soul is Thermo Web's Deco Foil in various colors. There are different techniques to choose from when working with the Deco Foil and applying it with your stamp art.

This is a card made by Pam Nelson who used FlitterGlu to apply the Deco Foil.

card by Pam Nelson
"The card at the store was made using the FlitterGlu and foil. You use the glue in place of ink of your stamp. Put a bit of glue on the craft mat and use a clean round foam applicator to apply the glue to your stamp. Stamp the image onto cardstock and put the foil over the image. Press it in place a bit, then turn it over and use a bone folder to push the card stock onto the foil. Turn it back over and continue to rub the foil side into the glue. You can see the foil adhere to the glue and release from the clear paper (kind of like the old rub-ons). I washed my stamp with warm water. I like Marj’s idea of using the Baron (stamp block with handle) so I will try that the next time."
You really need to come into the store to see how beautiful this card is; the gold foil really shines.

Jennifer McGuire has released a video showing the different techniques you can use to apply the Deco Foil, including the use of the FlitterGlu. Please click on this link to go to the video:

That's all for tonight. I hope each and every one of you enjoyed a blessed Easter celebration yesterday. Because the Easter holiday fell on the first weekend of this month, Recycled Rubber will be held this coming weekend. If you have items to bring in, please bring them to Art 'n Soul by Wednesday in order to allow staff sufficient time to check it in.

And this Friday the Art 'n Soul Journal Club meets from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. It's a very inspiring, fun and more than worth your time to explore the joy of art journaling. And it's free!
