An­nie’s On­line Card-Mak­ing

CardMaker - - Greetings -

Wouldn’t you agree that card mak­ing, or any craft for that mat­ter, is a lot like life in this re­gard? We hear about the new­est trend or tech­nique, we have lots of fun test­ing our skills with this new thing and de­spite some mis­takes, we learn so much in the process!

A few months ago, I hap­pened across in­for­ma­tion about an in­ter­est­ing-sound­ing work­shop on mak­ing sun prints, also known as cyan­otype prints. Since the work­shop was go­ing to be held at a new-to-me stu­dio and that I’d never tried sun print­ing, I was in! And, be­cause she lives con­ve­niently close by, CardMaker con­trib­u­tor Deb­o­rah Nolan joined me for the fun evening work­shop. As with any great class, we made a few new friends and dis­cov­ered an in­ter­est­ing tech­nique that brought a fresh twist to our card mak­ing. Check out Deb­o­rah’s Sun Prints for Cards ar­ti­cle in this is­sue to learn how easy and fun sun-print­ing tech­niques can be! I’ve picked up a few pack­ets of the spe­cialty pa­per and plan to in­tro­duce my youngest daugh­ter and a few of her friends to this tech­nique as a bit of cre­ative sum­mer­time learn­ing.

Are you are ex­per­i­ment­ing with any new card-mak­ing tech­niques this sum­mer? WI’d love to hear about your cre­ative ad­ven­tures and see pho­tos of the projects you’re mak­ing! Be sure to share a post on our Face­book or In­sta­gram page, or drop me a note at Edi­tor@CardMak­

Un­til next time,
