Taking a break from Sale-a-bration - 6x6 album
Every year I start a new 6"x 6" linen album to file all the techniques taught each new year. My album always ends up bulky because I file the cards we've made each month together with the techniques plus the 3D projects also. That way I keep track of what each group has covered during the year.
When I started my first club, I used naked chipboard letters (uncovered), last year I used DSP covered chipboards so this year I've come up with something completely different. I've used a stencil and applied a medium over it to get this effect, lifted the stencil off and let it dry overnight. I sponged Chocolate Chip over the raised pattern, then ran over it with a two way glue pen and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds.
I'm really chuffed with the final result.
