the Q & A continues...

PHEW...
We got MORE questions...

Hi Wendy...love, love, love your binder covers! On the second one, is the center of the flower on the lower right side a wooden button? It looks very interesting!

I took a closeup to show it better.
It's a vintage game piece...maybe an old checker??
ANYTHING can be a flower part!



NEXT QUESTION...

I LOVED the binder ideas and the helpful tips. I see the number vol 2 & the 3 is hidden in the flower, but I can not find the 1 on the first. IS it hiddeen for a reason?

You guys are too observant. There is no number 1 on the first binder, because if the stamps didn't sell, there wouldn't have been more releases.
I guess I didn't want to jinx myself! ha!


And I found this yesterday, while looking in my photos...
Another cool acrylic binder.

This one is made by Timi Taylor, one of the owners of For Keeps Sake, in St. Louis.

Pretty cool, huh?



And speaking of For Keeps Sake...

just a reminder...
they have a FUN weekend planned for you...Sept. 26 & 27th.

Ted is driving from Cleveland with a TRUCKLOAD of stamps...

For as many stamps as I have...
I still get excited to see so many in one place...

NUTS...I know...but I REALLY do LOVE stamps!

I'll be there on Saturday for a book signing @ noon & then a workshop for 40...
THANK YOU!
The workshop is sold out, but you can come & SHOP for stamps!
I'm excited!

NEXT question...

These are all FABULOUS! I know you stated it somewhere, but how much is your book again? I'll have to save some $$ for it.

it's $14.95 and priority shipping with tracking in the US is $5.00
International shipping is $10-$12...depending on the destination.
Payment is thru PayPal.

NEXT...

have you done roses in any other color besides blue? i'm thinking about red or maybe orange?

Here's 2 I did using Jenni Bowlin's mini papers...
for a different look...

I LOVE the mini papers because the patterns are small & PERFECT for making flowers.
The paper is adhered to grungepaper.

I have done red(fired brick distress ink) and marmalade roses too...

I think I forgot to take photos before sending them out...but I did like how both colors turned out.



Next ...this is from a cruiser...

ok, i know you won't tell us about the classes but tell me what will be for sale in the ship store...pleeeeeeeeeeese...

NOPE! My lips are sealed...We want you to be surprised.

I'll be surprised too...since I still don't have my stuff decided yet!

It's on that giant TO-DO list I mentioned yesterday...YIKES!

While I work on that list...

I hope you go...
and...

make art!

Linda Elbourne said...

Ooooo the roses done with paper are a fab idea ... would never have thought about adding paper to grunge! I am also loving these questions and answer sessions ... I missed the game piece first time round X

Jenna K. said...

I love those flowers...someday, someone is going to make a bouquet of them for an outdoor wedding!

Chirpin Is Fun said...

Love, the roses...can't wait to make some of them. I never thought about attaching paper to the grungepaper...what a great idea! Thanks for your Q&A sessions...lots of great info. See you on saturday to....Make Art! lol

Andrea said...

it looks like a draughts piece to me, which in America could well be called chequers, who knows with the different way with words, like Pants here being underwear and with you they are trousers, yes this is a bit of a waffle sorry about that :-) loving the other covers and the roses xx

Debby said...

Thanks for the idea to put paper on the roses. I have some papers that I bought and that are just sitting there. What glue did you use? I use YES Paste a lot of the time but sometimes the edges get slightly missed and the paper starts to peel. Looking forward to learning how to perfect the roses this weekend.

Wendy -

I really need to get your acrylic covers. What I am seeing is making me itch to create.

Wanda H said...

I hadn't even thought of glueing printed paper to the grungepaper, duh!! :-))

Alisa said...

Wendy-The roses using the Jenni Bowlin paper is amazing. I am definitely going to have to use that trick. Thanks for sharing all your fabulous ideas! What do you adhere the paper with?

Tona said...

I have a question...When ordering one of your stamp sets, do they come on the scalloped plastic page or do I need to order that separate?

Miss Iowa said...

I don't waste my grungepaper by covering it up with paper. I just use your stamps directly on my patterned paper and cut them out. You can still curl the edges just like you do with the grungepaper.

Joyce said...

What glue do you use to glue paper to the grungepaper like you did for the roses using Jenni Bowlin's mini papers? Thank you for taking the time to answer all our questions. I would like to see a TIPS section in your next book which would be answers to all our questions. What do you think?

Michele K said...

Oh brother, now I have a question from a question! What do you use to adhere the paper to the grunge? Just glitter glue or a different type of adhesive? Thanks for sharing all the useful info with us inquiring minds!!!!

Kirstin said...

Linda said...

So many ideas, so little time. Thank you for sharing your hints, tricks and ideas!
