Webbing Spray ATC's

After a wonderful 2 days spent with Jen Crossley & Dawnie in Ballarat at yes, a previous house of "ill-repute" (pics to follow!), then 4 days at the Creative Soul Retreat at The Country Place in the Dandenong's in Victoria, then a 9 day drive from Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road to Adelaide.....I'm home! I'm having a few modem issues so this blog post is a bit late. I have yet to upload my pics from the camera with previous mentioned massage house in Ballarat as well as pics of the retreat so these may be in the next post....possibly....don't hold me to it.
We have a bit of an exciting day happening this Saturday (10th April) and as we are so close to it, and also as none of my family actually read my blog, I can tell you it's my son's wedding! It's a big surprise, starts out as an engagement party (for only an hour), then the wedding kicks in. Hopefully to the total surprise of everyone attending!

Anyway, back to the reason for this blog post. The technique I'm currently teaching in my atc classes is webbing spray. I like to use webbing spray on all sorts of backgrounds, credit card technique, smoosh technique, resin fresco, in fact any background will benefit from a little spray with the web. If you only have one can of it in a particular colour (it comes in gold, silver, black & white), then if you're quick you can pour embossing powder over the webbing spray immediately after spraying as it stays wet long enough to grab the powder, heat it and you've changed the colour!

Some samples...

For Sale (wording up the top is fun foam stamped into with a word stamp)...





"Steel"...

"Nothing risque"...

"Poe"...


"Length of life"...

Even a simple glimmer mist background looks better with a little webbing spray. Steel and Poe above are both done on plain copy paper with Graphite glimmer mist and then black webbing spray. Length of life, For Sale and Risque are all done with gold webbing spray then coated with Antique Brown (a combo of copper and black powders) embossing powder.
Glad to be home in my own bed and after Saturday my life will settle back down again....phew!

Glad to have you back at the Retreat again this year! Not only to 'catch up' with, but also to have you as one of our tutors! You did us proud!

Hope you enjoyed the Great Ocean Road drive home! It's a nice 'cruisey' drive (if not stuck behind a caravan - lol).

And ... man ... you don't look anywhere in the age bracket to have a child marry! I want to drink from your 'fountain of youth'!!! you must have great tap water over in WA ... lol. Enjoy your son's (and future daughter-in-law) day!
