a Scrapbooker myself and always keen to learn new techniques,
I was very excited to receive Lizzie's Video in the mail.
The video goes for 45 minutes and covers a number of different
techniques, from foiling to wire embellishments.
The video provides the viewer with the basic techniques needed
to get them "on the way" to producing great layouts
and handmade cards.
Lizzie's presentations were easy to follow and it was great to
see and hear terminology used that's easy to follow by everyone.
The techniques were explained and reasons given as to why things
are done a specific way, and the specific tools required.
Product names were mentioned so the viewer could take note of
what items were used to achieve a certain effect, however, it
wasn't overdone and the video is not a commercial about products.
Wire embellishments, which are very popular, are featured on
this video and Lizzie provides basic instructions on how to make
them yourself. Basic techniques are featured and demonstrated
as well as the wire jig. The beaded Dragonfly, which is very impressive,
is so much easier to make that I imagined and creates a very stylish
and effective embellishment on any page or card. The examples
of other wire embellishments were also easy to recreate and with
the basic techniques and your imagination you could create your
own wonderful wire projects.
This video is perfect for the beginner wanting to learn basic
techniques; I can see great potential for further videos in this
series covering different techniques in greater detail.
Cost: The video's RRP is A$38.25 (postage & packaging inclusive)
