my weekend - part 3

The three talented and generous teachers got us started on some great projects (well, I didn't finish that day anyway!) Pam Garrison demonstrated how to make these fun Anthropologie-inspired garlands. I switched out the string she gave us and used seam binding I had at home and also added some fun polka-dotted tissue paper that French General used to wrap my purchases last month.

Teresa McFayden showed us how to make tin milagros.  I didn't want to cut up the cute tin she put the supply kit in, so I used an empty soda can but in the end decided it was too thin.  When I returned home, I cut up a galvanized step plate instead and aged it with Staz-On inkpads - I got that idea from people who were having trouble aging their pieces with liver of sulfur during the event.  The Staz-On doesn't cut down on the shine of the metal as well but it was good enough for this project.

One final post with the remaining class project and my purchases coming soon!
