Have you have ever planned something in your head, only to have it play out completely differently? That happens to me a lot, sad huh?
When I planned my rub on class I had this idea in my head how it would go, and it isn't at all how it went. But I think we still had fun. Basically what we learned is, you can't rush a rub on, and some materials work better than others. And for some people. Also, rub ons aren't automatic, it is a learned technique, but well worth the effort.
At about 10:30 and running on 4 hours of sleep, and delirious from the days' events, I thought I would rub on my scrap book, pretty cool, huh?
I think that you will love rub ons, but know that the first few times may be practice!
