One of my faves is a "Faux Mother of Pearl" technique!

On glossy white cardstock, pounce small amounts of Lumiere on the paper, using a small piece of crinkled up Saran wrap (plastic wrap). Let it dry, and then brayer any colour dye ink over -- lighter pastel colours work best if you want that true oyster shell look!

I do crayon shavings. like peeling an apple, I put the crayons thru a sharpener & place them on the paper...

I set the peelings with an iron & get different effects from stamping with dye, pigment, solvent inks....

I love using bubble wrap!!! It's really great. I wrap it around a block, ink and then go to town...Very cute!

Wow, clever ideas! Unfortunately, I'm not artsy (evidence: I earned a Master of Accounting & am a currently non-practicing CPA) & stick to basic stamping on my pages. Plus, I feel obligated to suggest that Zoe refrain from sacrificing the chocolate chip cookie (aka the female mascot) for the stamping cause & replace with the less desirable edibles in your kitchen or your father or husband's tools (aka the male mascot)!
(sorry been pretending with a preschooler all day...& it shows!)

This thread is pretty old. I bet we can revisit some techniques and add to them.

Daria

ETA: It's too bad that most of the links no longer work. This time, the word "kaboose" doesn't seem to be the culprit so I don't know of an easy fix. Some of the posts may be gone, but not all of them.

For example, I found this one: stamptheraPEA's Sponge & Bleach Technique

I wonder how many of these we can recover.

Daria



ETA: I now know why the links don't work. I submitted this to the Service Center; it will explain what's wrong:


Here we go again. This time the culprit is not the word "kaboose."

It seems that Two Peas has changed links by adding the words that are in subject line of the gallery post.

Here's an example:

The old link that no longer works: http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/gallery/?gallery=3&cmd=display&layout_id=567296

The new link: http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/gallery/member/40903-stamptherapea/567296-background-project-gift-bag-and-note-pad/

Since we can't access the post, we don't know what words to add to the link in order to make it work--worse than the "kaboose" problem which I knew how to fix by deleting the word kaboose and the extra dot.

Making this kind of unnecessary change makes our old threads obsolete. I found and added to this old thread, only to discover that the links that are already there don't work:

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&thread_id=129234&pg=1

My questions: Why? and Can we go back to the way it was so that the links actually work?

Thanks,
Daria

WTG, Daria! Thanks for resuurecting the thread. Might well have been one of first posts when I joined 2Ps & it was 3 years old then!

So glad we have StamPeas like you & others who work @ keeping our forum's history from going completely south.

Yeah. Loss of links is a bit of a bummer, but many of these posts are not completely link-dependant. It's one reason I so appreciate it when a poster adds something in the post that speaks to the idea/technique rather than doing only a link. Yes. It takes extra effort, but given the fact that we can't prevent change, it's a bit of insurance...

I used the project ID# to connect to a 'broken link'. Got the connection & gonna see if I can do the link...

Tie Dye BG

Hooray! It worked! Now... Sherry's instructions are easy-to-follow & this is a simple technique to do. Plus you can make 2 pieces at one time--very cool.

Couple of additional thots/suggestions... Re-inkers are probably the easiest to use for the technique, but I'm going to see if some of my juicier inkpads might work, too. I think liquid food color might work, too.

Also... Sherry's 'gather & twist' is a good one, but I did lots of tiedyed fabrics in the 60s. So don't be afraid to explore pleating, rubberband resist & other ways to prep the tissue paper for dying.

Thanks, Daniel. I wish we could fix all our broken links. I like that tie-dye background. It'd be fun to do that one.

BTW. In response to my Service Ticket, Matt (Two Peas Service Center) gave instructions to do just what you did.

If you'd like to view a particular layout, you can take the layout ID from within any particular link and search for it from the main layout page. For example, the layout ID for the following link is: https://www.twopeasinabucket.com/gallery/member/40903-stamptherapea/567296-background-project-gift-bag-and-note-pad/ is 567296.

Take this layout ID of 567296, click on gallery, and search for it on the lefthand side. This will pull up that layout.


When I click on the link, I end up on the main page for Galleries so I can't see the layout's ID. For those of you who don't know this: To find the layout's ID, right click the link and select Properties. Then you can copy the number and paste it in the search box in the Gallery.

Tanx, Dar! I used the info from your thread--just didn't post to it. But I did mention it on Lickeyan's 'Gallery' thread.

So far I can 'see' the ID# even when the broken link takes me to the main gallery. Lucky me!
