Spot


The word of the week on the A Muse blog this week is "spot". A couple weeks ago I was talking with my friend, Jane, and she told me about this very interesting new technique that uses Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers. You get the paint running on the top of the dabber and then spray it with water and slam it on to your paper so it sprays the paint a bit. Had to practice this before I got the hang of it but once I did I found it was really fun. Thanks Jane for a great idea!!! A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA starts this Friday so make plans to stop in at your closest participating store and take a peek at the new holiday release from A Muse. While you are there, take advantage of all the special events each store has planned. I will be at the Stamp Shoppe in Schofield, WI with my gift tags on Saturday, July 11th from 1-3. See you there!
