First Post!

I've decided to start a blog so I have a visual record of some of my more crafty work. I primarily work as a painter ( in oils), but a few years ago I was working on some collages projects. I found scrapbooking supplies....bought them...and fell in love with the stuff. I now work at a Scrapbooking and Art Supply Store- ART-TECH Supplies in Greensburg. All of my projects use product from that store. I teach Copic classes there, as well as help Cecilia on the road and at home with our Crop-around -the -Clock. Visit our store, it has the best selection I know of.
So for now- some ideas with Hero's new stamps. I used the new donut (Iced Donut F5320) and coffee (K5332 Cup o Coffee). The paper is just a craft cardstock, the ink is MEMENTO black, and of course Copic sketch markers. (If you want a color list I can post that). I also used a bit of Ranger Stickles and Pearls.
My favorite thing to do with old dumpy alphabets is to jazz them up with the Copics. They work on most surfaces. In the Java's case, I wanted my white vinyl to look like it had been stained with Coffee....
mmm now I want a donut!
