First Kathy Kromer from the Michaels design department shows us how easy it is to decorate candles with alcohol inks, then Julie FF creates scratch art using oil pastels.
Scratch art is a fun technique with all kinds of mediums. I remember coloring stiff white board with colored inks in art class, then we'd rub the entire surface with white, household candle wax. The final step was to cover it with black India ink and it was ready for scratch off. Kinda like lottery tickets! I love Julie's idea to use stencils as a design guide. My dad enjoyed scratch art too, but purchased ready made scratch board that was either black over white, or black over silver. Scratch art kits are also available for purchase at Michaels Arts & Crafts store, but Julie's method is much more fun and creative.
Nancy Hill from Die Cuts With a View joins me next with some absolutely gorgeous paper crafting ideas. If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember the photos I posted of the most beautiful paper dresses which were displayed in the DCWV booth at CHA Winter 2011. During this segment Nancy shows us how we can create our own exotic and beautiful paper art.
In our final segment Julie shares ideas for paper crafting with security envelopes. Want to know what that's all about, then head over to www.scrapbooksouptv.com and you'll find out!
