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.
