Stampaway Specimen Box Collage Class
Every kit was filled with pages torn from foreign text books including Greek, Russian, & German, plus sheet music,Asian text & newsprint, and my favorite for this class: a text book on building homes. Notice the largest house on the left: a page from that very book.
Now look at the roof of the second house from the right. Coffee Break Designs sells these wonderful chipboard pennants that I'd bought for my Elevated ATC class last year, but they were perfect for the roof of a house. Not just because of their size, but because it was an added element of dimension.
The roof of the house on the left was cut from a large border stamp made by Artful Illusions. And the roof on the second house from the right is metal flashing tape that I'd run through a texture plate. The key and token are real. Imagine assembling 40 kits with old rusty keys and metal tokens, but that's exactly what I did. Of course there were jewels and Bingo markers, Tim's spinners & tissue tape...the ladies had access to everything.
Another new product I introduced them to was Viva's Inka Gold...a waxy pigment that adheres to metal much like Rub n Buf, but far superior in consistency & color choices. So lots of the gals used it on their metal embellishments, including their rooftops. If you scroll back up and look at the houses, you'll see several of the roofs are made from the metal flashing tape that's been colored. How divine.
As always, I thank you for stopping by to visit. And to all the Lovelies who attended my classes, a HUGE thank you. Maybe next year I should make name tags for everyone that read "I'm one of Linda's Lovelies". Think anyone would wear one?
