Jennifer McGuire's Smooching Technique on Hero Arts Blog

Just a short post tonight, as I wanted to direct you to a really inspiring article and YouTube tutorial by Jennifer McGuire over on the Hero Arts blog , in case you missed it.   Jennifer presents her smooching technique, and the look is just so pretty.
I remember doing this technique years ago, and it's good to see a refreshed version.  Jennifer uses chalk inks, but it will work just as well with your dye inks, even pigment inks.  Also, note the words at the bottom....she shows how to "cut up" your phrase stamps to get the look you want.  Very clever, that girl. 

Do hop over and check it out.  You will be pulling out your stamps and playing this weekend, for sure!

Just finished a blog post over on my writing blog, A Little Perspective .  Now, I'm off to my craft room to cut up some stamps.  And, then to the couch to work on a blanket I'm finishing up (knitting) for my grand-baby, Kennedy Grace, whose Christening is this Sunday.  I want to be sure it is ready for the big occasion.  I'll be knitting into the wee hours, I think.  It's that procrastination thing.

With that, I'll say good night, make some tea, and get my fingers limbered up.
