Week 31 - Pick a technique new to you

This week it's time to try a new technique such as the baking paper technique, soot technique, crayons, beeswax ... something that's new to you and you've always wanted to try!

I(De) have tried the soot technique, it's a very simple technique, and I am quite pleased with the results. The back of my ATC has the reverse soot technique as a background. I think it would be a handy thing to do if making cards .... quick and easy :)
Here are some links to learn more about that technique.


This week I have done the Inclusion Technique. It’s sort of like making your own handmade paper, lol but with out the fuss. It’s a little hard to see in the image, but looks great in RL. I’ve used leaves, prima flowers, dictionary pages, a little reinker here and there, some Pearl Ex and some metalic rubons (like rub and  buff)
Here is a link to learn more about the technique.

  1. Your ATC turned out great, Elizabeth! I am guessing that you made a larger sheet full of inclusions and then cut out the ATC sized piece?
