First Jump Starts for 2013

Are you doing this too?
This year they are sharing "3 Ways to...." help you jump-start your creativity in 2013.
First technique :: double-sided tape and embossing powder with Natalie Kalbach, the organiser of JumpStart. Cool for borders or journaling lines - you can see some of it used on the book covers in this post (scroll down to the book covers). And this is my experiment

Journal page with embossed tape lines added
I used Tim Holtz distress embossing powders so they're not shiney (apart from the Ranger silver) :: milled lavender, weathered wood, and antique linen. Click on the picture to see the effect properly.
Second up was Julie Fei Fan Balzer - cool stencil techniques using distress ink pads, spray inks, and acrylic paints. 
First layer - distress ink pad
Layers of distress ink pad (border + butterflies),
spray ink (flowers) and acrylic paint (film strip + journal lines)
Cleaning off the stencils makes the beginnings of another background
Completed page : my resolutions for the year
This was a good reminder Jump Start for me. If you are a beginner, take Julie's FREE Stencil 101 class. Great even if you have some experience - I picked up some useful tips. 
This page is the first in a sweet journal made for me by a creative friend.
The shoes and dancing match well with creatively jumping :-)
Have a happy weekend
