This morning while looking at Facebook I found an entry by Teneale about a new site called “Global Design Project” or #GDP .They offer challengers and this is there very first challenge, so if you wish to have a go, go HERE …..enjoy!
So I had a look and really liked the challenge they put out there to Stampers/ card makers….I’m putting together the cards I want to do in a class this Friday night using the “Boken” Technique. I have had an idea in my head but hadn’t got it onto a card as yet. After seeing the challenge by GDP, I had it! Done and Dusted…so here it is.
What is Boken?……By definition, bokeh (boh-kay) is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image. Bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”.
There are many ways this technique can be done and there are some great articles on the internet…but here I have sponged colour onto Whisper White card stock using a template, them stamped over the top.
If you want to know more then book into my class on Friday 11th September……by going HERE
