Have you tried any crackle techniques? I REALLY
like the faux barnwood technique over at
Technique Junkies--very easy, and effective!

This is the cover of the cowboy mini book; the faux
denim (also from Technique Junkies) wrap and key slide off.

Have you joined in any of the latest round of
challenges at Gingersnap Creations? The newest
is the Denim, Rust, and Dust color challenge--
just use blue, rust, and tan in your project (nope,
it doesn't have to Wild West related!), and
post it to the Gingersnap site.
This is a kind of mellow color combination; I'm
interested to see what everyone does with it . . .

Okay, I'm not sure how I missed this tidbit of info,
but for this challenge, not only is there a chance
of being the Home Page Artist at the Gingersnap
yahoo group or being a Ginger Gem--Technique Junkies
is providing the lovely prize of one of their newly
released Emboss or Die cds, plus a TWO year subscription.
Now that's a gem of a prize . . . (sorry, had to say it!)

I didn't realise this was a book either, thought it was a plaque! The faux wood is great and I love the sentiment. Fab. xx
