3D Technique

I can't believe I'm starting my fourth set of Technique Pages! WOW, that's a lot of techniques and there's still many more out there. I have a very long list of ones yet to do. Some techniques are very old ones but none the less they are a technique and in good time will go into the book! I even had to start a new album. My album only held three sets, 60 pages. I suppose I could add a few more pages but I don't what the album to bulge. Fortunately I have another 6" x 6" leather album so I'm set. I have one more but it's got my recipe pages in it. But if I have to sacrifice the recipe pages to make room for the technique pages I will!

Anyway, onto this fun technique. You need to use two different color inks to make the image look like it's 3D. This would be fun on the background of a card or scrapbook page.

Just a reminder here. I finished the third set and it is ready for sale. You can email me if you are interested in purchasing a set of these finished pages. I will be adding them to my web store next week so it will be a lot easier to purchase. The store figures out the postage and everything for you. I have not mastered how to work the store. I am capable of entering an item but I do not know how to work with the photo. It's got to be sized a certain way and I have not learned how to do that yet. But I'm sure I will and then I will be posting a lot more things quicker!

The best part about this technique is that I have it all done and boxed up! I had to spend some time in the hospital waiting room on Thursday so I brought some stuff to work on and I completed these pages plus part of the next technique page I'm going to be posting. I am hoping to post a page every week to ten days. The problem with the pages is getting them all put together. I make a lot of copies of the technique and there is a lot to putting one together. I LOVE to sponge the edges and that takes time. There is the typing of the page, the stamping on the background. Making the technique over and over and over so I have enough for each page I'm making and then putting those pieces on the page itself. Then the page is layered on top of a piece of coordinating card stock. Once all that is done they go into a box, a label goes on the box and it goes into a larger box to wait for the rest of the techniques in that set to be completed! Making one page doesn't take much time at all but to make a bunch of them takes a lot more time and I tend to make the pages, cut all the parts for it and put that in a box. Then when I have a road trip or have to sit in a waiting room I will put together the pages. And then there are times where I just have to sit at my worktable and put together pages so I don't get too far behind! I don't complain about it, I like making them but I do get a bit stressed when I get down to the last page or two and I have several boxes of pages that need to be put together. And there you have it, the technique page making saga! Aren't you glad you know? LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
