Welcome to the HOP!

It's a blog hop! Today we are celebrating the NEW Sensational Stencils CD. If you started here, I urge you go to back to the Design Team home page now, so that you can see all of the gorgeous creations from the TJ team. The art they created is just stunning -- you will love it! If you arrived here from Shelly's blog, you are in the right place.

The art above shows the Gelatos Wipe Technique from the Sensational Stencils CD. It is one of the 40 tutorials on the CD. My goal with this CD was to help you use your stencils and masks creatively to complement all of your artistic projects. It is $14.95 and can be ordered HERE.

Both stamps used are from the Technique Junkies Stamps line. The Tree with Two Birds stamp (SD403) may be found HERE, and the Sentiment is from the Wings Quotes Set (S423) and can be found HERE.

If you would like to see everything on the CD, the Table of Contents is HERE.

Here is a full list of the hop, in case you need it:

A Tree in the Sunset

I just love Gelatos! This piece was created using the Distressed Fingerpainting Technique from the Artistic Effects CD. Coloring this image took less than 5 minutes! Of course, the stamp is Sunset Tree from Technique Junkies.

If you live near Fort Wayne IN, please come to the Stamp Show this weekend! I will be demoing this technique, along with 4 or 5 other Gelato and Goosebump techniques, at the show. I would love to meet you! Click HERE for details on the show.

Make sure you stop by tomorrow! We will be celebrating a brand new CD: Sensational Stencils with a blog hop starting at 8am.  The hop will begin on the Design Team Blog and end here. You are in for a visual feast! Don't tell anyone, but you can actually order your copy of the CD today using the link on this page. All CDs ordered this week will be mailed next Tuesday, when I get home from Fort Wayne. I am picking up the CDs on the way!

On a Personal Note:
I can hardly believe that it has been July 15th since my last post!

There are a multitude of reasons for that; the first and foremost one is that my youngest son was diagnosed with cancer the last week of April. My summer was dedicated to his treatment, of course, with very little time dedicated to the Technique Junkies businesses. I am thrilled to tell you that he is now in college (Northeastern University in Boston), and is in remission.  Many of you who follow my Facebook page know this news, of course, but I thought a quick acknowledgement would be in order for anyone who doesn't know. I have spent the last 30 days catching my breath and catching up. I will be more diligent in posting from this point forward, I promise!
