Fun Foam Technique

Promise.....no travel pictures today! I spent the day in my studio putting the finishing touches to my Technique Book #1 that I'll be teaching in July, as well as doing my samples for this Saturday's atc class using Fun Foam. Craft Fun Foam is another daggy product from years ago, remember the little cut-out shapes of all happy things like hands, suns, shoes etc that kids used to stick down in their craft projects, all in lovely primary colours.....yech!!! Like shrink plastic, fun foam can be arty, you just have to know what colours to use (I like black!) and what to do with it. Instructions won't be posted just yet, not until after the class at least, but here are the 3 samples I worked on today. I have another two all organised ready to go but ran out of time, the family must be fed though quite frankly, I can't see anything wrong with a toasted sandwich......made by yourself! lol

First up is "house, etc"...

Next is "Damaged by sea water".... you can't see it but the wording is embossed in black on a piece of mica (all in preparation for an up-coming class on mica....sneaky huh!)...

Lastly is "embracing destiny today"... I so love this colour combination of silver, duck-egg blue and black AND I love my new Stampers Anonymous Tree stamp of Tim's....

Will probably get the remaining couple done on my next day off on Wednesday so check back maybe Thursday if you're pining for some more fun foam....yeah, right, like THAT'S going to happen! (What a sad life if this is true! lol)

Wish I could go to Seattle. Wish you were a bit closer to me. I'd like to try more of your techniques.
