Hello, my friends and a very Happy Mother's Day to all!!
As a "gift" to all the moms out there (and perhaps to a few of the dads, daughters, aunts and friends!), I am posting a tutorial on the MUI-FANTASTICA black magic technique. The only WARNING I can give y'all about this is that it is ADDICTIVE!!
I also need to apologize for the "earthquake shake" from time to time in this tutorial. I had filmed it once, and upon review discovered that I had an AWESOME 7 1/2 minute video of the crown of my head (it was a good thing that I had taken a shower and my hair was clean and my part was straight). The camera was on a chair up and behind me ... sigh ...
SO, in all my BRILLIANCE I decided to put the tripod on top of the table and film straight down onto my workspace (it WAS filming what I was doing upsidedown, but I knew I could edit it and flip it around!). It was great until I realized when I watched it that every single time I stamped or colored with ferocity my table was doin' the shimmy and shake!! Ahhhh, the Learning Curve!! The next one with be even much mo' bettah!!
AND, you will also wanna visit the blog of my OTHER BFF, the incomparable JanTink!! She decided to play along with me on this one and made a SUPERFAB example of how cool this technique REALLY is!!
I need to give a some credit for the inspiration for this tutorial to my good friend, Karen Barber. She has been creating some WONDERFUL things with this technique lately. Go take a peek on her blog and see what I mean ...
