Technique Tuesday Technique Page

Shocker I know. Three weeks in a row!!! I'm going for a record. Or is this a record??? Don't look it up, I don't want to know!!! LOL

This was a fun technique I saw on SplitCoastStampers last week. I thought I would give it a try and see how much I liked it. It is fun to do and I'm saying that now because I only made the one little square for the technique page. I still have 30 more pages to make and I'm sure by the end of them I won't be so fond of this technique!!! One good thing about all of these techniques, by the time I come back to use one for a project some time has passed and I like it again!!! Time is such a good healing factor!!!

For this technique you just rip up some decorative paper. It's a great way to get rid of some of those scraps that you are hoarding!!! You sponge the edges of each piece. That is where it would get to be a bit much if you were making a bunch of cards using this technique. You glue the pieces in place, trim the edges and sponge the straight edges too. Then you are suppose to cover it with Modge Podge. Well, I have some but wasn't sure if it was solid in the bottle or not and I was too lazy to go look. Then I thought I would give the Crystal Effects a try since most demonstrators don't use the Modge Podge. And it did work!!! It's shiny. I'm not sure if that matters or not. I wouldn't think so. I would especially like it shiny if I were doing a winter scene and the background was in soft blues with snowflakes!!!

Anyway, the technique is fun and easy, just a bit tedious sponging all those edges. Pop in a movie and sponge away!!

You can view the other technique pages here. And you can purchase the technique pages on CD to use for your own personal use, for a Technique Page class or for a Technique Club. Just print, trim and they are ready to decorate and set on your 6" x 6" card stock. The CD's come with the photos you see on the blog so you can make them the same colors if you wish.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
