Bleach Tutorial

My wonderful husband got me a digital video camera for Christmas. I asked for it because I wanted to be able to do tutorials on my blog. So without further ado here is the first monthly techniques for January on how to use bleach. I show how to use liquid bleach as well as the "Clorox" bleach gel. I also show a resist technique, using embossing powder, the "Castaway" ink pad and a faux technique that looks like bleach. The next month is February and it's on Texture Paste so be sure and watch for it.

It's All About Mica

Christmas is finally over. (SHEW!!!) I got a fantastic book called "Transparent Art". It's all about using transparencies in art projects and has some very cool stuff in it that I want to try. (I think I feel a tutorial coming on!) I also got a gift certificate to Barnes & Nobles so I am looking to get a few other books I have been wanting.

I have also been working on the bleach tutorial for the upcoming monthly techniques swap. I hope to have the video edited and posted today or tomorrow. Of course that will be later if I have problems with the video.

I sent out the monthly technique cards for Dec which was using mica. Above is the card that I traded with everyone. I usually just give a card as extra to everyone who participates but there was only 5 people this time so I got to keep one for myself. (YEAH!)

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and got lots of art supplies.

Sorry these are a little late this morning but I forgot it's Sunday. You see my husband has taken three weeks off work so I am so screwed up with him home every day. Yeah I know what you're thinking and yes I am sick of having him under foot already. (SIGH!) Only 2 more weeks to go.
