Arty Give Away's

A few weeks ago I started doing a Technique Thursday for the Paper Imagery Designs Yahoo group. Every other Thursday I feature a new technique on the PID blog and then the members of the Yahoo group make a piece of art using that technique. This past weeks technique is Masking Tape Distress. The girls are doing such a great job on the group that I decided to add a little fun into the mix and will be giving away this atc in a random drawing from the members of the group who participated. The vintage woman is from Victorian Women sheet # 265 Join the yahoo group and you will receive a discount on your purchases at the web site.Thanks for stopping by!ArleneTechnorati Tags: ,,,,,,,
