A few layouts

This is my last official month at Creating Pages/My Kits & Pieces. I have been asked to stay on as a "free lance" designer so I'll be working with a kit in December. Here are my 3 kit layouts for September. I really loved the papers this month!



And this layout was for my newsletter article on "resist stamping". It's a very cool technique. Here's the "how to's".

1. Stamp images on white cardstock with clear embossing ink & heat emboss with clear powder.

2. With a sponge dab/rub stamping ink over embossed images. I diluted my ink with a little water and mixed several colors. I think you could do the same effect with watercolors also.

Where ever you've embossed, the ink will rub away or be "resisted". I dabbed a little embossing ink/powder on the torn edges too.

Clear as mud? LOL! I got the technique from the Autumn Leaves book "Perfectly Clear". They showed an awesome example of using walnut ink.

I should be getting my first kit from Simply Obsessed Tuesday. It looks like a totally awesome kit and can't wait to work with it! Check it out at http://www.simplyobsessed.biz/ when you get a chance. It's such a great site so far!

I start my DT work at Serendipity Kits in October. Really excited about that too! Awesome kits there too! Check them out! http://www.serendipitykits.com/.
