friday news

YAY! It's Friday again. No plans for this weekend, but we always manage to cook something up.

While I was playing yesterday, I discovered that you can heat emboss on paper napkins (above wing) and you can also apply rub ons (5) and of course rubber stamp on them. This may or may not be a new discovery but it was new to me so I thought I would share anyway. It's great for collage for a for sure result in advance.

This is one of the 4 five inch collages I assembled yesterday. It appears to be all greenish but the camera shows the white bits. To tone down the number five I applied a piece of torn napkin over it. The skull stamp is on a paint sample card.

OK, now you can view Sharon's mail art as a whole piece. I don't think the photo does it much justice. It's prettier in person. The tag has a silver embossed wing on it. I like to make my own envelopes. I use cardstock folded over and secure the sides with brads or eyelets.


For all you Ace of Cakes and Duff fans out there, he will be on Rachel Ray's show today.
That should be a hoot. I think he tries to show her how to bake. I can't believe she can't bake!

Have a great weekend and bake some art!

hi sUze,

LOVE how the napkins turned out!

I'm not sure what the grungeboard is made of. Tim Holtz says it's a paper based product but it seems rubbery to me. I plain on working with it tonight - I hope!
