Versamark Resist - New Cover

So begins another Technique Book, in fact it's Technique Book #8!   This cover is done using the Versamark Resist Technique.  You can do it either with embossing powder or without.   Doing it with the embossing powder is the way I prefer it as it gives a much brighter image.   Though if you want subtle, then just forgo the embossing powder and just the Versamark alone on the gloss card stock before brayering over the ink.

Here's the cover, it measures 20cm wide x 15cm high (approximately 8" x 6").

Below are a couple of sample atc's.  I'll have more to follow later this week....

"Secret Dreams"... (yep, he's/she's dreaming of acrobatic men!!!   did you work that out?)

"Breathe"... (this one is such a departure from my normal style I know.   I just wanted to try out the brayering over torn paper to create the little hills down the bottom and found that it didn't need a whole lot more.  I think this would make a nice card.... if I made cards that is.)

If you want to do this class, I teach for Artability at the Jim Satchell Community Centre in the suburb of  Dianella here in Perth.  This cover class is on this Saturday, the 7th of July from 10am-12pm and is repeated on Tuesday night the 10th of July, 7pm-9pm.   Click on the Artability link above do go to the class calendar to check out the other fantastic classes that are taught there by Natalie (the owner of Artability).  You can book through the class calendar.  My classes are $25 which includes the kit to make the cover as well as 2 sample atc's for inside the book, I also provide instructions to go into your book.  Of course, you do your own designs for the cover as well as the samples.  I bring along a wide variety of stamps but the girls bring along their favourite stamps too!
