Why is it that when you go to a crop when that closing time comes around you are still in the mood to do more scrapbooking, nevermind that it is 11 o'clock at night


The crop went well. I didn't get much done however, not because I was chatting, but because most of the gals were asking questions about my techniques. They would hear me sand papering away and then come over and ask me. Then asked about chalks, which I showed them. Then about faux stitching which I showed them. Then I helped my friend with her layout. So needless to say I didn't get much done, but I LOVED having the chance to share all the techniques I have learned and use quite frequently. Maybe I should look into being an instructor . I really loved helping them out. It's just I see such amazing pages that I really don't hold mine up to those standards because they are just amazing. So I don't know if I am expirenced enough to do a class.


anyway. Once I get these few pages finished that I started, I'll post them.

Anyway- I am on my way up north to our cottage so everyone have a GREAT weekend!!!

***Updated with pics a few post down.

OK, I would take a class from you too. Is that just regular paper that you are sandpapering? I have never tried that before.

Well these two pages are a good example of what different affects you can get from sandpapering.

On the 1st set of pages in green, sanding works better on these because it is on a white core card stock. So when you sand you'll get the white to show through. (then I usually add chalk and ink too) When you go shopping for paper you can look for white core to be listed on the front of the package if you get one of those packaged bulk sets of paper. If you are buying the paper from open stock, just look at the paper on the edge and you can kind of see how it is a little white between the front and back. If you can't tell then it is probally not a white core paper.

On the second set is what it would look like if you sanded paper that has the color through and through. I sanded it, but you really can't tell. So to make it look old I just rubbed on some brown ink.

You just use regular old sandpaper that you might use on wood. Also you can use wire brushes (just rub them over the top of your page) and it will give it a more prominent line. And if you crumple the paper ahead of time then rub, it will take off more of the color on any creases given it an even older, more well worn feel.

let me know how it goes!!!
