Whitewashing Technique & a Pop Up Card too

Whitewashing Technique

When I think of whitewashing, I can't help but think of Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer.

Whitewashing TechniqueTom resumed his whitewashing, and answered carelessly: "Well, maybe it is, and maybe it ain't.  All I know, is it suits Tom Sawyer."

“Oh come, now, you don’t mean to let on that you LIKE it?”

The brush continued to move.

“Like it? Well, I don’t see why I oughtn’t to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?” That put the thing in a new light. Ben stopped nibbling his apple.

Tom swept his brush daintily back and forth—stepped back to note the effect—added a touch
here and there—criticized the effect again—Ben watching every move and getting more
and more interested, more and more absorbed. Presently he said: “Say, Tom, let ME whitewash a little.” 

Tom considered, was about to consent; but he altered his mind:

“No—no—I reckon it wouldn’t hardly do, Ben. You see, Aunt Polly’s awful particular about
this fence—right here on the street, you know—but if it was the back fence I wouldn’t
mind and SHE wouldn’t. Yes, she’s awful particular about this fence; it’s got to be done
very careful; I reckon there ain’t one boy in a thousand, maybe two thousand, that can do
it the way it’s got to be done.”

“No—is that so? Oh come now—lemme just try. Only just a little—I’d let YOU, if you was
me, Tom.”

I hope that after you see today's Whitewashing Tutorial you will want to try whitewashing too. But the Tutorial doesn't stop there.  I'll also show you how to make a Pop Up Card.


 Pop Up Easter Card Tutorial



Easter Pop Up Card

The pop up is a fun way to picture the empty tomb for Easter. The verse is actually from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set, but it also works perfectly for my Easter card.
