Emerging Color Stamping Technique

Ok, I'll admit it...I really love stamping and the more I stamp the more I want to stamp. It's a wonderfully vicious circle. Emerging Color is one of those techniques that have some very basic and constant elements to it, but the creative license is all yours in how you present it. I'm sure if you Google or YouTube you will find a ton of tutorials and a lot of them will be very similar. Emerging Color boils down to this one word: resist. This is at its very core a resist technique. The whole trick to doing this is to remember that you will work in layers.

Just a few thoughts and what has been going on..

I've been working on this one lay-out for more than a week.  I made some new, what I guess I'll call page elements, and I so want to work them into a page.  I was finally able to get one of them onto a page last night, but it is a work in progress.  I will often draw out a sketch for the photo I have in my mind and because of my busy schedule Monday-Friday, I don't often get the change to start working on a layout.  Instead I will sketch and re-sketch the page in my head, and on paper, over the course of the week and will put things out on my work table and shift things around.  I can't leave too many things out because my cats will have a blast when we're not home....those little darlings. 

Tomorrow is National Scrapbooking Day!  Woo Hoo~  I will be going to my next door neighbors house and we will be scrapping the day away.  I'm not sure how I am going to get everything over there so this should be interesting.  If you are anything like I am, I start out with a plan and then watch it morph 90 times before I finish a page and then when I look up all I see are stacks of every paper I have that I've managed to paw through, paper scraps in a little pile, a pile of hand made embellishments that I spent so much time on and then never ended up using, etc.  I think you know what I mean.  So, I am hopeful that I will have at least one, if not two pages to post here over the weekend as well as a tutorial for a new technique I am working on....maybe two tutorials...stay tuned!!!!
