For the April Yearlong Album class I took things a little more mixed media:


I love how the resist and texture turned out with the Distress Stains we used for colour:

I have to admit, resist techniques are my favourite! Give me a new resist medium, or a new way of combining resist ideas and I’m a happy little camper! 🙂

I also stick to some basics for me and one of those is this trick:

april taps

A few taps of mist or paint perpendicular to the photos to draw your eye across. If you go back through my LO’s you’ll see this trick quite a bit. I also love how it adds a bit of colour without overwhelming your nice open white space.

Things are crazy here, as always, and amping up as the weather turns (slightly) warmer. More outdoors time and less computer time so as usual, summer will be slower on the blog than usual. Of course, it’s been slow here lately anyway so you probably won’t notice a difference – oops!

One reason for the craziness is some classes I’m prepping for – and I’m excited about this one:

sneak peekA kid’s summer mini album, open to ages 10+. We’ll be playing with heat embossing, dry embossing, alcohol inks, making our own stencils, and more! Details will be added here when available but the date will be July 6. Hopefully, I’ll see some of your kiddies there!


P.S. Happy Friday the thirteenth! And its a full moon to boot – let’s bring on the crazy!
