{Spotlight Project} Maria Emboss Resists with Distress Oxides



Hello STAMPlorations friends! I'm playing around with Distress Oxide inks, today in combination with the emboss resist technique. The result is so tactile - I wish you could reach out and touch it!



The suede feel of the Distress Oxides. The clear embossing. The sentiment of various thicknesses. Wunnerful, wunnerful. Let's see how I created it.

{Happy 5th Birthday, CASology!}

{Mixed Media Tutorial} A Canvas Full Of Love - Five Easy Steps to Creating A Mixed Media Canvas



OH Happy, Happy Summer day everyone! It's Lynne Mizera here today to share an extra-special Summer Mixed Media Tutorial. I am going to share with you the five steps I use in one of my very favorite mixed media processes to create these lovely 5x7 canvases.



This is the class I teach for people who have never done any kind of mixed media or arty stuff before. It takes the "scary" out of the mixed media process and gives you a place to start - using supplies and tools that you probably already have on hand from your card-making and scrapbooking supplies.


July Challenge Mid-Month Reminder - More Inspiration

Hey, all! Have you played in this month's theme and sketch challenge? Our theme is STAMPS & WARM COLORS. We'd love to see projects with glorious reds, yellows, and/or oranges...or even beige and creamy colors.
