Faux Metal Book Cover & Industria!

I'm a bit slow in posting these pics of the cover of the ATC Technique Book #2 that the girls in my atc classes at Scraptivate have just started....but here they are now. I decided to give them an extra by including 2 techniques for this class. It was a push but I think the girls who have done the class already have enjoyed how they turned out. The 2 hours really flies when you are eyes down immersed in your work and I love that they all get into the spirit of creating and the class just hums along.


The basic background is a la Julie van Oosten's Industria style with a Faux Metal atc on the front cover. I also did up some credit card technique backgrounds for the atc for the girls with a wonderful colour combination of Burnt Umber, Fawn & Smoked Pearl (all Jo Sonja paints) as it went really well with the silver/brown of the Industria style. The book has "T 2" on it standing for Technique Book 2, some girls decided to change theirs around slightly by including other letters to spell out "Art Book" or just simply "Art". I love that they feel comfortable in doing this and know that I'm doing my job correctly by giving them the confidence in going their own way.


Cover of ATC Technique Book #2...





Some close-ups of the cover - I used Swiss Dots from Cuttlebug for the embossing on the T2 as well as using some wire that was attached with the ultra-fabulous Mini Fastener from Tim Holtz! I showed the girls how to colour their little staples with a sharpie before loading so they can colour co-ordinate the staples with their work. It's perfect for this book as the stapler works wonderfully through the thickness of the chipboard and has a really strong attachment capability. Love it!!!




I had a bit of fun with the image for this book cover, the T2 not only stands for Technique Book #2, but also I thought the image reminded me of Terminator #2....though I don't think Arnie ever looked this good....he was a bit over-blown for my taste, whereas this man is just PERFECT!!! lol








The raffle atc's for this series of classes were made in the Industria style.

Soot technique is coming up next fortnight and I know that the girls who haven't seen this particular technique are going to be blown away by it. Who doesn't love soot technique!


I must thank Audrey for bestowing on me a Friendly Blogger Award, it's much appreciated. ;-)
