Faux Rust

Hi all! It has been a while since I have posted here! It’s been a busy summer!! I decided to get back into the blogging spirit with my take on making rusted paper. The catch? It is fake ;). Here’s a picture of the faux rust background… And here is the video on how I…

Gesso’d Cards Push-Pull with Stencils

I was fortunate this past week to visit with my Mom, and join a fun group of ladies in Sun City Center at their Thursday morning stamping group. During their class, I showed them a fun technique to add texture to backgrounds for their cards. We started out with card stock that had been painted…
