Direct to Paper TechniqueCustom Backgrounds with the Direct to Paper Technique

The Direct to Paper technique is an oldie, but a goodie and I've been using it a lot lately to create perfectly coordinating cardstock to match my inks.

In this video, we'll take a bit further to create a technique accent piece that is subtle, yet adds an interesting element to this card.

I mentioned a few other videos in this tutorial, here are the links:

Speaking of classes…if you checked out my post the other day, I gave you a few clues as to why I am in Denver right now.  Two of you guessed correctly!  WOOOT!

If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you've already learned that I'm in Denver filming a class for Craftsy.

It's been an amazing experience so far…but I'm not gonna lie!  Filming began today and it was a bit nerve wracking and intense.  I'm in a professional studio with a crew and producer and the whole nine yards!

The crew was ridiculously amazing and worked hard to make me feel comfortable and have fun with my card creations.  It was really fun and I can't wait to go back and film the rest of the lessons.  Kudos to Craftsy for creating such a fabulous atomosphere that inspires creative teachers to share their talents and passions!

This class will be out this summer and I will keep you posted.

Craftsy!

Here are a few photos…the studio I'm filming in, my “dressing room” (that makes me giggle!) and Michelle from CAS-ual Fridays and I.  I was thrilled that Michelle was able to come out to visit.  In true crafty lady style, we were cookin' something up.  Stay tuned 😉

Talk to you soon, my friend!
