Random techniques

I am starting something new. I put a bunch of techniques, supplies and tools on strips of paper and put them in a cup. After I decide on pictures, embellishments, etc., I draw out a slip of paper and use whatever it is on that layout. The reason for this is I have supplies, embellishments, etc. piled everywhere and generally stick to the same old stuff and never use the stuff I have.

So, I have things on my list like:

Dry embossing
Heat embossing

I was going to do videos but I never talk loud enough on videos. I will work on that for a future series.

The first paper I drew was ribbon so here is the layout I used ribbon on.  I also used the title, journal block and altered CD from a swap on scrapaholics annonymous yahoo group.


  1. great idea what you are doing with the cup and the strips of paper! Love that altered CD!

  2. What a great idea! Great way to use up your supplies! That's some great inspiration.
