This is one of the samples I sent to Dreamweaver Stencils. The background was done using the petite fern stencil and rouging in Colorbox Chalk ,Warm Green and then Olive Pastel. I used the same stencil ,with double sided mounting paper in conjunction with Hawaiian Handmade Soap .
First coating the stencil on the back with the soap( this allows you to remove the stencil from the sticky paper with out bending it. ) Placing the stencil on the sticky paper you can now glitter the design, I used Glitter Ritz Micro Fine
Grasshopper and Cool Highlight. I punched the glittered paper using Marvy's scalloped rectangle punch and layered the the glittered piece to light green paper and popped it off the background.

Hi...Well here we go

Obviously I have never done this before. I am starting this blog so I can keep in touch with my students and also with the ladies of the Dreamweaver Design team. My name is Georgia Sommers and I live in the San Francisco Bay area. I was born, and still live in Castro Valley. I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my art habit and 2 daughters who enjoy doing there own kind of art. Right now I am teaching at 2 stores Jazzy Crafts in Castro Valley and Scrapbook Territoty in Berkley. I love creating beautiful cards and teaching others to do the same. If I'm addicted to rubber stamps I think everyone else should be,too. I was just selected to be on the Dreamweaver design team and I can't tell you how excited I am. I really have enjoyed our fist challenge and can't wait to do more.I will be posting some cards as soon as I can figure out how to do that. more to come....
