Technique Club: Focal Points

I had a hard time coming up with a common theme for all the cards that we're making at next week's technique class, but 2 of the new techniques involve doing something special to create a unique focal point. The techniques for this month include: Spotlighting, Glitter Window, and using rub-ons. For the next few months there will be at least one Christmas card made in each techniqe class to get us all thinking about ideas for our Christmas cards. It felt a little unnatural for me to be making a Christmas card in September, but I managed to do it!

Contact me if you'd like to attend this class.

This card features the technique of "Spotlighting."

The card above is an example of "Glitter Window" using clear packing tape and dazzling diamonds glitter.
