Class projects, Crop & Create Delivered

Crop & Create Mar 2023 – Ranger Ink

I thought I’d better hurry up and complete more classes from the March Crop & Create event before I started the current September one! This class was with Simon Hurley, and it was a fun one working with Lunar Paste in different ways. I wasn’t happy my water pen had a conniption during splattering and gushed onto the completed panel, but that’s OK they just look like boulders haha.

Things I enjoyed:

  • I loved using the lunar paste not just through the stencil, but using it to create a stamped image.
  • I loved the subtle effect of lunar paste being applied using a domed foam blending tool – will definitely do this again in the future.
  • I really loved getting out of my comfort zone to create a scene I’d never have chosen myself – I don’t always like the results, but I love being pushed to try new things and won’t ever why away from the challenge. And is often the case, even when I don’t love the results, I have friends who jump up and say how much THEY love the cards.
  • I always forget about my Distress ink cubes, but I was reminded how beautiful the blue is in Blueprint Sketch – I need to use that one more!
