Technique Tuesday
by
Judy Cantrell
Sharing two pages of my mini-book.



Before beginning the mini-book add the holes with bind-it-all tool. Paint each page with two coats of gesso and heat set to dry.
Use ink blending tool to color each page and tag using a variety of distress ink. Heat set to dry.
Spray each page with moon shadow mist over the distress ink. Heat set to dry.
The first page;
Stamp the couple with black ink on white cardstock. Cut-out the couple and color with art pencils. Set aside. Using olive green ink pad, stamp the foliage on the page. Heat set to dry. Apply the stamped image to the page with adhesive. Let dry well before going to next step. Wipe the entire page with a soft cloth before stamping the quote with black ink. Sprinkle embossing powder over the quote and heat emboss. Stamp the quote on the tag with black ink. String the tag with like color of braided threads.
Second page:
Stamp image of woman with black ink on a separate piece of white cardstock. Cut out and color with art pencils, apply to page with adhesive. Let dry well before going to next step. Wipe the page with a soft cloth before stamping the words with black ink. Emboss the embossing powder and heat set. Stamp the tag with black ink and apply with same color of braided thread as before.
When finishing all pages use your bind-it-all to finish the book.
