Just a quickie...

I finally put the finishing touches on my LO for the Dina jack over at scrapjacked.



It didn't photograph as well as it looks in person. But, I pulled out the tissue paper, and tried this technique that I haven't done in years (not since I was really into altered books). Anyway, you take some tissue paper, and can stamp on it if you want. I used the new Heidi Swapp damask stamp with some gold pigment ink. Once the pigment ink dried, I painted some gold glitter glue over the top of it and crinkled the paper up. Not only does it provide a cool effect, but it gives the tissue paper some extra strength. Such fun. Like I said, the technique looks so much better in person, it doesn't photograph quite as cool. But, I had lots of fun with this challenge. Dina Wakely rocks...she has to be one of my favorite artists! Anyway, that's all for today. I'm sick, and off to take a nap.

Way cool effect! Sorry to read you and your kiddos aren't feeling well either. Mine went back to school today for the first time since last Thursday and around 11 I got "the" call that my son had started throwing up again. So now we are both going to take a nap. So glad it isn't snowing in NY yet. Hope you feel better!
