1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Pocket Letter Swap 1 Gallery on: May 27, 2016 06:08:12 AM
we have a gallery! and an awesome start. I love that pocket letter...

And for anyone that missed this swap, PLs are addictive, I am pretty sure most of us participating would jump at a personal swap

Yes I would love to get some personal swaps going for this. I am intending on starting a binder to keep my pocket letters in. Smiley Now I just need some cute stuff to fill it.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / UPDATED: Distress Stain Inchies on: May 24, 2016 11:13:01 AM
I purchased a 3 pack of Tim Holtz distress stains a while back on clearance at Michael's. I wasn't sure what to do with it, but it was so cheap I went ahead and bought one. Today I was just wanting to create *something* so I used a piece of watercolor paper I had just sort of doodled on and pulled out the distress stains. I have a red, yellow, and blue stain. The stains are very easy to use and in a bottle with a sort of dabber like top. I just smeared a good amount of each color on the page and encouraged their blending by adding a little water in between each color transition. Once it was almost dry I used a wet paint brush and splattered water droplets onto it. Once it was dry I used some fun stamps in a black ink all over the page. Here is the finished product:







The distress stains give a really bold amount of color which I love. Let me know what you think!

UPDATED:
I loved how the inchies turned out but felt like they need more. So I added some stuff and I think they really look great. Here is the updated photos:

Lots of great stuff. I especially love those batik fabrics. I love to buy batik but then I have a problem cutting it up because it's so pretty. Smiley
