Here is a blog post from 2010 Christy shared with us…..
I love Core’dinations ColorCore pre-embossed cardstock. It makes a great base for a mixed media technique page.
I started by dry brushing gesso over the entire surface of the teal paper. Don’t add water as that may lessen the embossing a bit. I then added Clearsnap ColorBox dye ink to the raised surfaces by directly rubbing the ink pad on them.
I love the how antique the finished look is.
I used Core’dinations ColorCore die cuts on the page as some of the many layers I have under my photo.
To celebrate Christy’s love of the arts we have set up a Scholarship for the Arts in Christy’s name. The Boys & Girls Club of Calgary is near and dear to Christy and her family. It is her family’s wish to be able to provide art scholarships and support for local youth wishing to pursue education in the arts.
