As the title says - just flying by before the weekend kicks in because we all know how fast they like to zoom by. Here's my take on the new episode over at Studio L3 hosted by Linda. I like to think of it as mix between a laboratory and playground where you can delve into the techniques, inkiness and history of Mr. T. Holtz. Take a look the demo and grungy gossip here to see how you can conjure up a little faux batik. It's a really great technique and my iron saw more action in one night than it has all month...
I stamped the doily in Wild Honey and after the embossing bit I went on to use Rusty Hinge, Scattered Straw and Brushed Corduroy. I love the lacy detailing of this stamp (Hero Arts) and how it's come out with these tones. I got a great lace effect on my brown "soak-up" paper too. So two for the price of one! I added a bit more colour as the heat does reduce the colour slightly and then stamped a little mesh in the back ground. The Paper Artsy girl in an old but well-loved image stamped in Plum Archival, followed by some buttons embossed with Distress Powder.
The Artistic Stamper where it's Monochrome, plus one colour.
So... that was the creative newsflash for Thursday. Do hop over to Studio L3 and visit a few of the arty folk out there. It's really good to see so many inspiring and individual creations!
See you and the weekend very soon...
