Bonsai - Wet Stencil

Another fun and this time easy technique from TJ... This technique is from Tricia Morris. You can use both watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils with great results. I used crayons, I think it's easier because crayons are softer than pencils.
I enjoyed doing this one and did it with a metal stencil, the ones we use with a light table to dry emboss... then I realize that in fact if you take a tick acetate you can draw your own design and cut it out to use as your unique stencil....!
The background first layer is gold foil paper this is what you see as black!!!

Sleeping beauty

My lovely granddaughter Anabel 5 days....

Angel pyramid

Hello my friends After thinking that I had gone wrong with this tech I finally realize that it is the way of looking at it that makes all the difference... when you scan it you see it flat, when you have it in your hands you see all the layers but at one point you do see the image as a whole... so if you haven't tried this TJ tech yet go ahead it's beautiful ... lots of cutting but it's worth it...!!! Here is my card assembled

Prends plaisir dans la vie!

Hello my friends.
Take pleasure in life is another TJ technique called "Double Bugging" from Debbie Bankston who was the originator of this simple and special technique! I found it quite nice to do and creative to put together 2 cuttlebug embossing folders that fit well together...
Cuttlebug floders (2).
Wording from Stamping up.
Adirondac ink lettuce and Ancient Page ink Lapis Blue.

Flight of the Butterflies...

I love this card... it's a nice TJ technique called "Depth of Field" by Dee Ruger. The images are layered on the cardstock to create the illusion of depth. Bold images are necessary with this technique to achieve the proper results. The texture of the orange layer has been added with a Fiskar texture plate, unfortunately it does not show on the scan!

Ink used: Sail boat blue, Sunset orange, Antique Pewter.

Stamps:butterfly from Indadinkado, wording unknown :-(

It would of been better to have a lighter grey but I went with what I had...!

ANABEL was born in Montréal on Wednesday June 10 at 9:59 and she weighted 8 pounds 14 onces...! For a first one it was not easy!
So I'm proud to present who is one day old on this picture. I now have one more little sunshine!

Masking Technique.

This one is super and gives amazing results. It requires a little patience but it's worth it and who doesn't have patience when it comes to your art???

Clear Coat Collage

I love doing art cards on the week end!
Here are 2 of my latest one. The technique use is "Clear Coat Collage" from Technique Junkie and it is very interesting to do!

The yellow layer of Dreams and the green layer of Boats have been embossed with Fiskar texture plates... I find it deceiving that it does not show :-(!!!!
