What's your fave technique?

Post by Lorraine on Thu 6 Nov 2008 - 22:24

Not so easy to answer this one, I don't think. Many, many techniques are basic, everyday ones, but even so, they are techniques we use regularly. What do you like best or which do you use most often? Paper engineering, stamping, origami....?????

Stamping and Heat embossing are very basic, but I couldn't craft without using the techniques on an almost daily basis.

I love colour blending too. I do lots of that using my inks on all sorts of papers and surfaces. Stampbord is a favourite surface.

I also love paper folding and stuff. I often make envi's, pockets, waterfalls and things like that.

I love tearing and inking the edges (of anything).

I love stamping but Im nervous about stamping on any finished article (like a layout).

I enjoy cutting out letters something quite therapeutic about that but only when it goes right.
I can't really think of a favourite I like them all. I seem to be trying to stamp everything at the moment though. I think I'll ask something about that in another thread.

Yes, I have lots of favourites too. Stamping and embossing is high on the list, but distressing has to be the all time fav at the moment. Also love cutting out flowers and swirls, and love using acetate too. I could go on and on ...... and on!

Edging with inks for me too - at the moment that is. Also dry embossing (although thankfully I do far more with the cuttlebug folders that I could ever be bothered to do by hand).

I'll be back to this thread soon, as I change my mind so often about these things Embarassed
