Negative Mask Technique Class

Tonight on my ustream I will be doing Tags on a technique called Negative Mask. I learned this from a book called Creative Foundations by Vicki Boutin. This book is available at Barns and Noble on the Nook Readers or Paper Back. I will teach you the technique of using a mask or Open Stencil as a mask. It gives a 3-D look.

Materials I am using

Open Stencil of any shape (example Punched Circles or any shape cut on your cutting machine)
Distress Ink and tool
White Craft Ink
Stamps (background and image)
Black Archival Ink
Painters tape for stability
White Gel pen

Join me tonight on my ustream channel http://www.ustream.tv/channel/all-things-creative1 at 7 central.

Pool Room Slaw

Okay here is the recipe for the slaw, there are not really exact measurements but what I have is just a idea and you can taste and judge about what you like.

Pool Room Slaw

1 head cabbage
4 to 8 oz mustard
1/2 cup Red Wine Vineger
2 cups sugar
1-2 tsp salt (adjust to your need)
2-3 Green Onions - optional and to your desire
1 Green Pepper optional 

Using a blender forst chop up the cabbage, then add remaining veggies and blend well but only to a medium course or a relish type chop, do not puree. Add  sugar and vineger, the add mustard in spurts to your desired taste. Store in a closed container in the fridge, the longer it sets the better the it tastes will be great for the 4th of July or a Picnic. Add to your hot dogs, hamburgers or BBQ sandwhiches!! Yummo!!!
