What on earth are stickles? I searched it and glitter glue came up. Is that it?

Yes, Stickles are a glitter glue. It's so much easier to use than loose glitter. I use it whenever I want to a little glitter. And there are so many colors available...  Smiley

Well, I've read this thread in installments over the past week or so, and it's been awesome! Thank you everyone for the inspiration.

I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on incorporating organic elements, other than pasting on pressed leaves, flowers, and whatnot. And is there a good way to preserve the color of things like that?

I'm not sure if this is the right place, but if you cut your own ATCs  - this site shows how to get 10 ATC from a letter size (or A4) sheet.

or if you have 12" square scrapbook paper, you can get 16 ATCs and 4 inchies. Cut the 12" paper in 4 squares of 6x6 and cut it like this (not drawn to scale) with 4 ATCs around the edges and an inchie in the center

Don't know if this is really a technique or not, but I use those candy foils from Ferrero chocolates for borders and things so we eat alot of those.  Anyways, I don't like to waste and I'm always left with those huge clear plastic containers afterwards.  I just take the paper out and use it for my packing tape transfers...they stick to the inside and I use both sides.  That way they don't get fuzz on them...or cat hair Tongue

I concur! Fur and fuzzies are the mortal, ever-present enemies of everything I create.  Smiley

I want to make sure you've all heard about artist Bee Shay's book "Collage Lab" and the websites associated with it. She has a blog as a companion to her book, where various other artists are sharing the results of their experiments. View that one
here.

Artists Kay and Nan are going through the 52 experiments in "Collage Lab" over the course of one year in a collaborative blog.
Sit down and have a long look:
Collage Lab by Two: A Year of Collage

I appreciate their generosity in sharing what they learn (and what they create in the process), as well as the amount of time theyre saving me and others. Lots of inspiration to be had in both places!

I hold the card still in my right hand (I'm a lefty), and a pad of pigment ink in my left hand. I "scrape" the ink pad along the edges of the card, going a bit heavier in the corners. For this card, I used black ink, because of all the black already used in the card, but usually I use a brown ink for more of an aged look. I also used that technique in the hat band you see here, to give it more of a 3D look.

Thanks for sharing... I use a little ink square but I think an ink pad would get a more even effect
