Canadian Scrapbooker Winter 2011 - Feature Video

I am thrilled to say that the Winter Issue of the Canadian Scrapbooker has shipped and stores and subscribers will be receiving their issues shortly.

I hope you enjoy my first ever article with them - A Scrapbooker's Gift!
I won't say to much more about the article yet ... at least until I have it in my hot little hands -- BUT I will say that every issue will also include a link to a special project video based on the technique that I share in the magazine. I think that's pretty cool.

This is the first video. SO, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy. We'll be taking the "Create your own Styrofoam Stamp" technique (that is stepped out in the magazine) a little farther for you ladies and gents who are interested in mixing media. In this video I will show you how to stamp with your styrofoam stamp on muslin and then embellish it with needle felting and free-form stitching to create a fabulous applique image to place on a custom fabric book cover. Phew! That's a lot but I think you'll like!

Without further ado.... "Quiet on the set....... ACTION!"


*NOTE*
The Jean Fabric used in this project is one of my father's old denim shirts!

Products used in this video:
Styrofoam Plate - you can get free at your Grocer's
Jacquard Dye-na-Flow
Batting (Quilt, Cotton or Fleece)
