But this one, first of all was recommended by Tim, and second of all was only $19, and third of all, I'd have access to the videos forever. Duh. No brainer. I was in. And to my very great surprise and delight, the instruction is so clear, the videos so well done, and the techniques so interesting, I actually started following along and am up to date!
Registration is closed and you can't sign up now, but in two weeks when it's over, the PDF version will be available. Click here to find out more and see the finished piece we'll be making after doing all the technique samples.
If you went to the site, you saw that Jennifer did all her samples in the shape of a heart. I'm not really a heart type so I used a Stampin' Up bird punch instead. Some of the techniques didn't photograph very well, so you'll just have to take my word for it when I tell you they all look great. I wouldn't lie to you.
The first 5 samples were all about resist techniques. The name of each technique is under the photo. I know I usually give lots of details and directions, but these are not mine to give.
paint resist (the wing is a different, bonus technique)
trapped emboss resist (how cool is this?)
The next set of samples explore all sorts of dry embossing techniques.
embossed glossy (with layered punch wing....another bonus technique)
paper rosette with embossed canvas
altered color embossing (with cool tip on perfect punch positioning...say that 5 times fast)
faux letterpress (maybe my favorite so far) with embossed metal wing
I have been a long time technique junkie, and thought I'd know them all, but there have been a few new ones for me. And the ones I already knew about.....the class was a good reminder, because some of them I haven't used in ages.
I'm excited about this class and all I can say is, the next time Tim recommends a class, sign up!
