OMni Gel, Micro Glaze and Tranz-IT

I wanted to post the answers on the front to these two questions/comments.

Yes I did do a book using Omni Gel ....Vintage Greeting Cards from Northlightbooks,
Since that book an even better product came along Tranz-it Gel From JudiKins, works in the same way as Omni with better results on more surfaces!

And What do I do with Micro Glaze?

There are four basics with Micro Glaze
1. Resists You can stamp with Micro glaze or mask with it to create resist effect
2. Fixative, waterproofing agent
3. Mix with Pearl Ex for a metallic rub on
4.It is a great buffing agent for all ink especially fluid chalks and alcohol ink

Autumn begins

Thought I would share my yard a bit, since it is just the beginning of Fall here, things are just starting to change. My Jack Russell terrier "Tapas" heads down the main path to the back of the property. My Borage is absolutely thick this year. The bees are loving it. This is one of the hammocks I bought a few years back on the cruise it did not get put up last winter and so I need a new one.
I am heading to South Carolina this weekend where I am sure it is still summer. Hope to see some of you at the Heirloom Greenville show. check out for info.

Frenzy Stamper Weekend

Well I am back home for a day and just downloaded some pics from my trip.
I always have such a good time hanging out with Debbie. Her store is a warm and inviting( just like Debbie) place with tons of personality and a huge selection of stamps and product. We had a hard time fitting all the JudiKins stamps in, so many were just left on the counter!
I love going down to teach at FS plenty of room in the class area and so many familiar faces from the days of
Rubber Stampede( that was the original show in the area run by Elaine Madrid of Carmen's Veranda)
These are a couple of photos from the beeswax class, myself and Debbie and the store. sorry I took this one late in the day and it is a bit dark.
