VSN’s Weekly Deal: Sept 02 – Sept 08 2013


Monday means that it is time for another VSN Weekly Deal! This week, I thought I’d share another VSN back issue newly transformed into a pdf digital version. This one is the Feb ’09 VSN issue with a focus article on Resist Techniques and a Class Tips article on creating Surprise Shaker Cards. Normally $3, this pdf back issue is on sale from Sept ’02 through Sept ’08 2013 for $1.49 (50% off.)

Nov ’09 VSN: Focus Article: Resist Techniques

The Focus Article in This Issue Covers:

  • Embossed Resists
  • Resist & Watermark Ink Resists
  • Oil Medium Resists
  • Wax Resists
  • Glue Resists
  • Faux Batik Resist
  • Joseph’s Coat
  • Micro Glaze Stamped Resists
  • Fluid Chalk Resists
  • Wax Paper Resists
  • Acrylic Paint Resist

This article consists of two main sections. The first is experimental: “I put my art supplies to the test to see what resists I could discover using materials I have in my stamp room. I organized my tests using five categories of potential resists: resist and watermark stamp inks, heat embossed images, wax, glues and oil-based mediums. There were two to five varieties within each of these categories. I then chose six mediums to apply over the resist bases: water-based dye ink (Marvy Matchables applied with a cosmetic sponge), solvent-based ink (StazOn applied with a cosmetic sponge), oil-based pigment ink (VersaFine applied direct-to-paper), alcohol ink (Ranger Adirondack applied with a felt applicator), watercolor paint (Da Vinci Paints applied with a brush) and acrylic paint (Golden Liquid Acrylic applied with a brush).”

The second part of the article is specific step-by-step resist techniques: Embossed & Faux Batik Resists, MicroGlaze Stamped Resists, Fluid Chalk Ink Resists, Wax Paper Resists and Acrylic Paint Resists.

The Class Tips article in This Issue Is:
Surprise Shaker Cards: In-depth Step-by-Step How-to article by Suzanne Glazier with Detailed Directions for Shaking Up the Inside of Your Cards!

Quick Tips in This Issue Include:
Patchwork Trimmings Cards, Ribbon Flowers & Snowflakes, Clear Pocket Alternatives, Tacky Glue & Foil, Shaving Cream Background in Protectors, Coaster Play, Tips for Using Photos, Labeling Ranger Inkpads, VersaFine Defined, Peel Offs in Color, Carry a Ruler& Snippets, Punchless Corners, Cleaning Scissors, Displaying Cards & ATCs.

This pdf back issue is in the same page layout as the original print issue. Unlike VSN’s eArticles, it has not been reformatted to fit typical computer screens. It is, however, searchable and printable. (32 pg, b/w & color)

You will find this VSN Weekly Deal on VSN’s Online Shopping Cart.
