A Monday in August

Posted by KIKI in Uncategorized | 5 Comments

It’s hard to believe it’s nearing the end of August already! It’s true what my parents have always told me…the older you get the faster time flies!
I always love it when my parents share stories with me and my kids, from when they grew up,  and some of the favourite stories we love to hear are from my mom. Her father was a lighthouse keeper, and she spent her summers out in the middle of Lake Superior in Northern Ontario. She loves all things with lighthouses on them, so for her I made some cards like this one!

Isn’t that China collection glittery embossed paper absolutely perfect with this soot stamped image?
It’s a bit of a finicky technique, but I highly recommend you hit youtube and look up soot stamping. It’s fun to do and a little adicitive.
Make sure to use some fabulous KikiArt paper or funtapes with your soot stamping, and leave a comment linking us to your blog so we can see what you’ve done with this fun technique and KikiArt! 😀

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Monday!
