I had the pleasure of helping at the Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in Louisville on Saturday. I presented a Workshop Wow" demonstration featuring the Faux Tile technique and the new Simply Scored Tool. Here's one of the cards I made for the display board.
This demonstration was different than the one I did in 2009 (read about it here). Instead of a 5 minute presentation on stage in front of 500 demonstrators, I was at a booth with a mirror above me and had smaller groups of people come through to watch me do the same demonstration over and over for 2-1/2 hours straight. I enjoyed the more casual setting and smaller audience and was surprised at how quickly I found a rhythm given the fact that I didn't practice at all. There was much less stress than last time, but my voice was pretty hoarse by the time I finished!
Thanks to Mary Ellen Stites for providing this photo. I'm pointing to the small end of the Simply Scored stylus. This is the best end to use for the Faux Tile technique. Score a grid and then use a sponge to apply ink over it. (I used Crumb Cake ink.) Click here for a printable tutorial on the Faux Tile Technique.
