The Crop Spot in Tyler, Texas

If you live close to Tyler, Texas and love paper crafting, you will surely want to go visit Jana Glosson's store, The Crop Spot.  Jana has filled the store with lots of great basic supplies and tools, as well as many of the new trend products and supplies.  She has classes throughout the month and times set aside for crops.

Today, I went to The Crop Spot to meet Jimmye Sue Mitchell of Texana Designs, and the artist for the rubber stamp line, Joyce A Meyer.  They had two cards for us to make, taught a couple of techniques and I got to use some of their stamps with Joyce's beautiful artwork. 

Texana Designs' ETSY shop is here.

On this card we used a paper piecing technique and water colors.

This one used a bleaching techinque on the cardstock, with pearl paints washed over the bleached areas.  This was my first time to play with this technique, and I can see where I will be using this one a lot.

A big thank you to Jana for hosting the training, and to Jimmye Sue and Joyce for sharing their incredible talent.

Here's two of the stamps I bought today.  Hope to get to play with them very soon.
