Last night we had a very interesting talk and demonstration about card making and block mounting, by Ray. Thank you Ray for taking so much time and effort to produce the blocks and all the other equipment provided.
Those members who had brought a print were all able to make a block mount after being shown step by step, the procedure. The blocks had all been cut to size and sanded down by Ray, beforehand. This made the whole process much easier, as that stage of the process, is probably the most difficult. We blacked in the edges, the back of the mount and then with double sided sticky back paper were able to fix our prints.
We were all delighted with the results and many members bought extra blocks to take home to make as Christmas presents. On sale were small easels to show off the mounts.
We also had a go at making cards, Mary had a production line going on her computer and printer. Ray has produced an Action for Photoshop which will be on the MCC Website. This makes the production process easier to follow.
A very sociable evening with people participating and enjoying learning something new and different.
