Basic Training

 
Happy May!!!
This months basic training goes out to all the gardeners, happily mucking about in the soil. Nothing adds to a garden like a little brickwork or a rockery. Here's a four step tutorial that will have you adding bricks to your paper projects in no time.
 
Supplies:
Three strips of double sided foam adhesive, 4 inches by 1/2 inch
(Elmer's has a lovely roll of foam adhesive 1/2 inch wide.)
Thin toilet paper (preferably NOT quilted.)
Three colors of water based ink pads.
Glossy Accents
Paint Brush
Step 1: Remove adhesive cover and apply toilet paper, tear to size.
Step 2: Dab with ink pad. Let dry.
Step 3: Paint with Glossy Accents. Let dry.
Step 4: Trim into 1/4 inch strips.
Build walls, bridges, and other structures with your new supply of self-adhesive bricks.
