A Mixed Media Project: Ancient Artifacts Microscope Slide Mailer Video Tutorial

Hello fellow Color-Artistes!  I just wanted to let you know that I have a new video tutorial up today featuring, of course, those fabulous products from ColourArte.  We all love working on page layouts and canvas, but today, I thought I would try something a bit different.

I found these chipboard microscope slide mailers in my stash.  I've had them for years, but you can get them online by google-ing microscope slide mailers.  You can also find the glass slides by doing the same, and if you recall, Ranger was selling them some years back, too.
