Jeremy's Bistro


Hello! Kathie McGuire here with a technique from 12/2005. Remember Milk Paint? This is one technique that I use over and over on my projects. Look closely at my card and you'll see that Milk Paint is the element that helped pull my entire card together! See the black strip that separates the floor from the wall?? That's it! It's a strip of black "wood" paneling that looks like a baseboard or even a small piece of wood trim mid point on the wall (depending upon how you, as an individual, look at it).

I made this card for a friend who is a Culinary Chef at a high end resort in New York. Obviously, his name is Jeremy and I decided to put him in his own "Chef Jer's Bistro". I created the sentiment on my computer. Jeremy made a fabulous Italian dinner for me a few months ago when he was visiting in Arizona, so the pile of spaghetti seemed perfect for him! The image was colored with Prisma Colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. The floor image and the chef are Stampin' Up stamps; the wall is patterned paper.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit to Chef Jer's Bistro and a little taste of Italy!
