The Texture Paste class that starts tomorrow at Scraptivate is the first of 3 Texture Paste classes that I'm teaching with this sometimes smelly, but fabulously textured stuff! I've done a few more samples and have created the ones that are to go into the book. This is how the atc classes will be run this year, you learn the technique, make up some samples in class and put them in your book, I supply the instructions to go on the opposite page. Anyway, you know all that so here are some more Texture Paste atc's.
"Snow White"...(quote courtesy of Mae West)
"Carpe rutila"...(this means "seize the spade"....love that quote too!!!)
The next set of 3 atc classes is "Coloured Gloss" technique. It's a way of taking plain white gloss card and colouring it, either in a single colour or blended. As gloss card takes stamping so well, we'll be focusing on using stamps to tell a story on the atc's. I try to get the girls in my classes to think before just stamping random images all over the paper....try and think what goes with what so even if you don't use words, the images relate and people can come up with their own story.
"Three things"...(a Dorothy Parker quote....as I've said before, I'm not a man-hater, I just appreciate a good sense of humour, which Ms Parker has in spades!)
I received a blog award from Danielle, she's into cardmaking, scrapbooking & ATC's. Thankyou Danielle for this one that I haven't seen before, but I'm going to be a big party-pooper and not nominate though, I have a lovely list of delightful blogs to the right so if you're feeling inclined and have a few hours to peruse some spectacular work...feel free!
