Mojo Monday with a New Technique.


Hello again!

I'm back again. If you missed my first entry today, scroll down to find it after this post. Boy, have I been busy this morning! I got three boxes packed with stuff in my bedroom (we're moving to RI in June), did some laundry and even had time to do today's Mojo Monday. This was a hard sketch to work with this time, I thought, because there were so many layers to it. Sometimes I wonder if everyone else is making the same size cards I am because I always feel like I'm running out of room. This card is a bit bigger than a normal size card; but I just couldn't figure out a way to make all those layers fit otherwise.
I combined the sketch with today's SCS technique challenge Embossed Wax Paper Resist. This was a very simple technique and a lot of fun. On my card it is the Groovy Guava piece. One note about this technique if you haven't tried it yet. After you run your wax paper through your Cuttlebug or Big Shot (or whatever other machine you are using) make sure that when you iron the two pieces of Glossy Paper together that you pick up the iron and then set it back down again. Don't slide it around like you would when you iron normally. I did that the first time and my designed smeared and looked really bad.
I felt like there were so many things going on with this card, that I opted to keep the center very simple with just a sentiment.
Ok, so that's all for me today. (really!) I off to do some blurfing for just a few minutes. Have a great day.
