TEACHING Tuesday - October 9th

Today's teaching tip comes from Tracey.

"I am hooked on doodling templates right now, particularly Crafter's Workshop. Here are a few things you can do with them besides the typical doodles:

-Look for doodles that look like letters, particularly the letter 'S'. This makes a great monogram for the title of a layout. {example here}

-Lightly trace the scroll or flourish with a pencil and use it to journal, then erase your line.

-Trace the flourish and use it as a guide for stitching. Attach a few flowers when you are done and you have a great vine detail for your layout or card."

Here are some of Tracey's favorites :-)

Favorite Snack: chips and dip

Favorite Drink: water

Favorite Paper: This is continually changing. Right now, I love Crafter’s Workshop, the Paper Trunk, Daisy D’s, Basic Grey. Was I supposed to just name one? LOL

Favorite Technique: Sewing

Favorite Embellishment: Scrolls

Favorite Scrap Tool: Doodling Templates by Crafter’s Workshop

Favorite Adhesive: UHU glue stick
