I had a wonderful day yesterday! I spent it with my art friends Harriet, Sandy, Belinda and Sarah. We were invited to Belinda's home for lunch and creative time. Joey was included in my invite and he had a blast playing with Belinda's two children and Sarah's daughter. Belinda has a fabulous, humongous house with lots of space for doing art. Her studio is large and fully stocked with almost every supply you could want to play with!!! We were open to doing any technique, so I suggested that we try a new one (a yummy textured background using deli paper) that I found a tutorial for on Dani's Site (The Stamping Witch). I actually saw a sample of the technique first on Hermine's Blog and fell in love with her version of the background so I follwed the link to Dani's Site to get the instructions. I found that the instructions were in German and even though there are terrific photos' included I was unable to figure the technique out. I emailed Hermine and asked if she could translate for me and she very kindly did a translation (which is now included on Dani's site). So, thank you Dani for the technique and thank you Hermine for the translation. My friends and I had a really fun time creating beautiful backgrounds with the technique (sample above). We made a few substitutions since we didn't have all the materials required in the instructions, but they seemed to turn out just fine. We didn't have deli paper or PVA, so we used tissue paper and Sobo glue. Again thanks girls and thanks to my local friends for an absolutely fantastic day!
