Ahhh..... Well i have been so busy the past week i am running around like a chicken with his head cut off.... Last weekend i went to the Winterfest weekend at the Oberlin Inn in Oberlin, Ohio. This event is hosted by Stacy Rich of StacyStamps. I taught a Ranger class using my all time favorite products and taught some of my favorite techniques. Soo every one who left my class(as the title of my class implies) left Running Rampant with Ranger. So here is a sample from my class. Hope you enjoy.
(This technique is embossing an image in clear on a white core black tag, then using a handheld sandingblock sand away the black paper untill you achieve the desired look, then using the distress inks and an applicator tool, you will simply add color in the desired areas.*If too much color is added simply sand more until you have removed the excess color)

Ahhh... Inspiration!

I draw inspiration from so many things from movies( i like old movies better) phots, magazines but my favorite place to draw inspiration from is nature. There are so many diffrent natural textures and colors that you find naturally put together. That you would never have thought to put together.
