Graphite Powder Resist

Hello everyone! It has been a long while since I have posted on my site. I have been super busy with lots of things- house, kids, and learning jewelry techniques! More to come on that in future blog posts! But for now I am returning to an oldie but goodie- the Versamark stamping resist technique….

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…

I am so thankful to still have my parents around. They are doing well in their new home, and I got to visit them last week. While there my Mom and I were stamping and I tried to show her a technique, but she didn’t have the suplly I needed. So we improvised, and it…
