Nancy,
What a great blog candy! I love the TJ group, would be thrilled to win the CD.

As far as a favorite technique, I go back to a TJ one--silken mist. I use my Twinkling H2Os a lot. That background is so versatile, whether I'm painting an image with my Twinks or just stamping on it.

My "most" favorite technique is paper embroidery. I'm trying to find some ways to combine rubber stamping and all of the wonderful TJ techniques with the embroidery!

Blessings,
Pat Barger

I agree - great blog candy!
ummm favorite technique, not sure I have one - I usually give one of the Technique Junkies techniques a try - I also like to make a Michelle Zindorf card - she is very talented!
Thanks for the fun!

Wonderful blog candy, I hope I'm lucky!

I love to use chalk inks to age and distress backgrounds for cards etc. They give a subtle look which I love.

I love the distressing look so much so guess that is my technique...and love to take a brayer on a rainbow pad and run over white cardstock, so pretty.
I would LOVE to win the CD...it would be so special.

Thanks for the lovely blog candy!
It would be a real gift to me, since my birthday was just last week.....
I love distressing too and using masks.....

Hugs and thanks

I really like paper piecing right now - it's great for any stamp that has clothing in it. And I've used it for other things too - like cars (doesn't everyone want a plaid car?)

Love TJ and the newsletter. I think one of my favorites recently is the Bandanna Technique. Such an eye-catching look; peaceful. Thanks for the chance to win a CD.

I do not have the CD- I would love to win it! I have seen some beautiful cards using the Faux Designer paper- I have made a couple of cards using this technique and will look forward to making a few more. I think my favorite technique is the next one I have not tried! Thanks for the chance to win!

Thanks for chance for some great blog candy. My favorite technique is anything that involves resists, particularly embossing an image, applying colour and then removing the embossing with an iron.

Brenda said...

Brayering, embossing, chalking, distessing - all 4 at once! Love the effects you can get esp the brayering adding layers of colour until you get the look or effect you want. Love Pat's work and hints and ideas.

Susan Hackney said...

My favorite technique is embossing. I also love any type of water coloring. Love technique junkies! Thanks for the chance to win!

There are so many techs I like. I guess I would have to say Faux Designer Paper and Camouflag. Boy I really would like one of the CDs.

I'm new to TJ, so I don't have a big repertoire of techniques yet, but I'm a big fan of distressing - usually by direct ink to paper. Does that count? Would love to win that CD!! Also, I'm going to be following your blog now - its great!

Ohhhhhhh great blog candy!! I did an online only renewal, so don't have the latest CD yet. Got the other 5 though. Not sure I have a fav technique, but recently did the camouflage tech and fell in love with it!!

I like texturing paper: crimping it, folding it, crinkling it, etc.

Becky said...

I love so many techniques! But, the one thing I do almost always, with many techniques, is to lightly distress and ink the edges of the various elements on a card, page, ATC, etc. I feel like it gives it a finished look and helps tie the various elements together.

I am new to "techniques" rather than standard paper layers, however, do like the look of polished stone, so far

I would love to win this blog candy! I love Pat's TJ! One of my favorite techniques that I use a lot is coloring my line images with Prisma colored pencils blended with baby oil or goo gone (not sure what the name of the tech is).

HI Nancy!!!

My favorite technique right now is watercoloring with an aqua-painter brush! I use re-inkers, watercolor crayons and twinkling H20s with my brush. I love the soft look of the watercolors.

leenda said...

Cracked glass is one of all time favorites.

sandyh50 said...

I go to Pat's blog a lot! I like distressing, Zindorf style brayering with clear embossing, and watercoloring with markers. I just like learning new things. I would love to win this blog candy.

OK, I am not sure of the name but it is theone with the shaving cream and the ink refills to make your paper looked marbled. This blog candy is ALMOST as good as chocolate!!!

Marilyn said...

Nancy, It will be awesome to win this CD!

My favorite technique is one I learned last summer while taking a class on line.
It is called: 3-D effects with microbeads.

You take an image: photo, stamped, etc.
Cover in double sided wide sticky tape (on top of image),
press tape to secure (regular tape does not work - it must be tacky red/clear backed tape),
Peel backing of tape (very sticky),
add microbeads,
press down on microbeads,
add more microbeads to fill in gaps.
Build your card!

It gives the card a beautiful multi-dimensional look!

I would love to have this CD - its the only one I don't have yet :).
My favorite techniques always have to do with coloring - prismacolor pencils, twinks, peerless watercolors.....but I also love to paper piece too.
