I just watched a video sponsored by Ranger and Utee. This presentation showed how to use embossing powder to seal paper beads. I’ve heard of people doing this, but had never seen it done. (And it proves what I have said in the past. When it comes to arts….and crafts….there is more than one way to be creative.)
One thing of note for me: Using resistant ink on the dowel to assist when removing the bead. This tid bit of information may come in handy in the future.

I sprinkle the word “creativity” throughout my blog. What a word! I’m still trying to figure out what that means in my own life.
I recently received a commercial email dealing with creativity that I wanted to share. It was sent to me by Cloth Paper Scissors, an Interweave company. The reason I find it worth including in my blog can be said in two words “Tim Holtz.” Tim is the Creative Director of Ranger Industries. The topic: Tips for Creating your own Signature Style.
Click anywhere in this sentence to take you to Holtz’ article in clothpaperscissors.com.
I’ll list just two: “Experiment. Trying new things is key to developing your style. It’s true that you won’t know what you like until you try it.”
“Look around. While our creative surroundings are full of inspiration, it’s what you take from them to make it your own that’s important.”
I hope this article assists you and me in learning more about our own creativity and signature style.
