Fall 2010 Retreat

The last couple of months have a been a whirlwind for us getting ready for our Fall Retreat. There was a chance I wasn't going to be able to make it due to work. Luckily that didn't come true. I am not sure I could miss one.

This is a picture of one of the Class kits our attendees received last weekend.

The techniques we used are:
- We used a Clear Glaze Pen and doodled on Vanilla Cardstock. Then after it was dry, we used Spanish Moss Glimmer Mist. The Clear Glaze acts as a resist to the GM. If you don't like to freehand, you can also stamp an image with Versamark ink and it will act as a resist as well.

- We cut flowers out of the patterned paper that will be later covered with the brown cardstock. We adhered them to the page, raising their petals with dimensionals.

- We adhered self-adhesive pearls throughout the layout. We used the stencils from the i-Rock tool to make the swirl that is under the cut-out flowers.

I will be listing some of these kits on ebay next weekend. The kit will include the Spanish Moss glimmer mist, cardstock, patterned paper plus step-by-step instructions.. If you are interested, please send us an email and we can make arrangements or check us out on ebay (seller name is inkyfingersdora), The kit will be $15.

We should be able to get back to a weekly posting either here or on Facebook or both.
More posts coming soon... classes I took at Tulsa and Kansas City CKC and more.

Talk to you later, Dora
