Here we go again. This time, instead of having one unalphabatized list, we're going to have three separate Classic Threads that mimic our Updated Checklist for the Gallery:

Classic Threads I: Techniques, Tips, and Tools
Classic Threads II: Adding Color
Classic Threads III: Using Selected Supplies

Here are the other two:

Classic Threads II -- Adding Color

Classic Threads III: Using Selected Supplies


Under Techniques and Tools, I've included everything that we've put in that section of the Updated Checklist for the Gallery. (That finally came in handy.) I also added a few items to that list to incorporate some of the art types on our Checklist that have their own special techniques: Altering Anything, Art Dolls, ATC's, Jewelry-Making. I did not list art types that fit into existing categories or those that use a variety of the techniques already listed. For example, boxes, covers for checkbooks, and gift card holders already have a home under Templates. Journals use all of the techniques.

Under Coloring Mediums, I'll include everything we have listed. I'll put Ink/Ink Pads in one thread; many of the threads compare the different types so that will be more practical than listing each type separately. I'll give Versamark a home of it's own since it's involved in so many special techniques.

Under Other Supplies, I'll only include the items that have to do with special techniques, such as acetate, clay, dimensional adhesive, glossy cardstock, shrink plastic, tiles, tissue paper, and UTEE.

I hope everyone will contribute and use these threads. If nothing else, they will make it easier for us to find information.

Alcohol Ink techinque:
THis is SUPER EASY. Just take a craft sheet (one of those non-stick things that Suze sells) and scribble with a Krylon pen, then add a few squirts of alcohol inks and then some extender. Lay down your paper and smoosh it around (very technical). Pick up and let dry. The end.

Here is a new technique I learned today.

Start saving the foil from candy wrappers. You can cut up all of the wonderful colors (imagine the pastels at Easter, the oranges and yellows at Fall, and the reds and greens during the Holidays). You can cut up the paper as fine as possible, and save them to use on your cards behind an images stamped on acetate.

You basically run your matte cardstock through a xyron. Drop your cut-up colored foil on there, and now you have a background similar to leafing flakes. You want to make sure that you cut up the paper as tiny as possible, so you don't have bulky foil behind your acetate / transperacy. Stamp your image on the transperancy with StazOn and layer it on the foil-covered matte. You may want to use a "frame" around this, after you've matted it, so the unfinished edges of the stuck-on foil don't show.

Don't forget that the Classic Threads are a good way to search for information. Please link posts regarding Techniques, Tips, and Tools to the appropriate resource thread so that we can easily find them. Anyone can link their own or someone else's post. Thanks, Daria

Hi, Three Pals. In the first post of this thread there is a long alphabatized list of techniques. They are links; click on any one of them to go to that technique. In some of the later posts, people have added more links. Before the alphabatized links begin, there is a shorter list of links. Take a look at the one that says Learning Links: How-to's and Tutorials. You'll find lots of good sites there.

You'll find a few more techniques tucked away in the following threads:

Classic Threads II: Adding Color

Classic Threads III: Selected Supplies

I hope this helps.

It's time to put this back to the top. I find these threads so useful. When I can't find something with a direct search, I just search for Classic Threads and often find what I'm looking for there.

Here's a wonderful video on the Stamp Kissing Technique. It shows all the ways to do this.

Thank you, lauralooloo for the link to The Stamp Goddess's video. Check out Laura's pumpkins and leaves on this layout: Laura's Layout.

I know that we have a thread somewhere that talks about this technique. If I can find it, I'll link it here too. It didn't show up in a Search.
