I can’t believe January is almost over already! This month flew by, at lightening speed. Creative Jump Start 2013 is almost over, but you can still sign up (its FREE!) and go back and watch all the videos if you want. I have LOVED seeing all the techniques and different creative approaches! Many of the products used have been things I already have on hand, so I could go try out the new technique right away. But some of the products were ones I wasn’t familiar with, and I wouldn’t have bought because I had no idea how to use them. A lot of times the product packaging isn’t very helpful in describing ways you can use that item, you’re just supposed to know I guess. Like embossing powders, I thought they were difficult to use and that they couldn’t be used in an art journal. I was SO wrong! A few different artists featured in the CJS 2013 used embossing inks and powders in their demonstrations, and it really showed how many ways it could be used, and with awesome results! So it is now another item on my “I really REALLY want” list, along with canvas tape, some sweet new stencils, spray inks, on and on and on 🙂 The Fab Foils and bonding powder technique was also awesome! (vid #37) So much inspiration!
So here are some pages and tags I have been working on. Most with techniques from/or inspired by CJS 2013, and a few inspired by pages from “Journal It” by Jenny Doh. (Still loving that book a ton!)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
