Welcome To Techniques Zone, an Online Archive of some of my favourite Backgrounds, Rubber Stamping, Card Making, Paper Crafts and Mixed Media Techniques.

Ive decided to revamp and give my site a fresh facelift and move all of my pages to WordPress as its easier to edit them and change their format when I get bored….

Below are the links to the menu’s of the selected Techniques and Projects Ive chosen as my favourites to share with you.

I’ve been working on another journal page today which I wanted to share with you. I took plenty of step by step photos of the process for those of you who are interested in seeing how I created this.

Below is a picture of my journal page before I started working on it, Im using the Dylusions Journal, I love the nice big thick pages which are perfect for ink and papers.
