Faux Mono Printing Workshop July 26, 2017

FabMo Faux Mono Printing Card Workshop
Finally getting around to posting my next workshop at FabMo. Made the samples and poster but forgot to take a picture. Took a few weeks to get back down to FabMo to take a photo of the poster. 
Everyone is welcome to attend the workshop, just let me know your coming. We will be using Twinkling H2O watercolors the way they were intended to be use.  You just paint your stamp once and you can get several image by just misting with a little more water. If there's time we'll also make some backgrounds, my personal favorite with these watercolors. All supplies are provide and a $10.00 donation to FabMo is requested.

Compass Card

To help with the creative process when I'm in a slump, I make backgrounds. I'm not sure what it is about just slapping color down on paper but it works for me. The back ground will sit around for months until my creative light bulb goes on. I had made some of the cards last month when I came across these mini compasses in a junk pile. The compass is really too thick to mail but it's just fit the theme of the card so I just went with it.

HB card 2017

What happens when you take photo after midnight, just a little off.
It's great when you have other crafty friends who have all the lastest good stuff! I borrowed the HB die (Poppy Stamps) to make this card for a buddy's birthday. I'm on a inlay kick right now and using my water colors. This die really has too many tiny pieces for the inlay technique but it was made for a special friend. I won't be making to many of these in future but I think it turned out well!

My Happy Place

Carmel City Beach
Sometimes just knowing where your happy place is makes all the difference. As all crafters do, I took down a ton of projects to work on. Really didn't get to any of them but it doesn't stop me from packing as if I will. :)
