We just had our second class Tuesday evening and I am amazed
by the beautiful collages everyone created! Our project was crafting a 4" coaster, using a variety of botanical, butterfly, and bird images. We combined them with vintage script or sheet music, and added vintage postage stamps. (I scored a big collection of fabulous stamps at Goodwill last week---what a terrific find!)
Can you believe how beautiful these are? The backs are just as pretty:
On the backs we used more sheet music, French text, or vintage wallpaper, then finished them off with little rubber pads in the corners.
Here are a few more (they are fantastic
Our parting shot is of the lovely Kathleen and Michele showing their handiwork (note the cute charms on their new necklaces!):
It was the perfect ending to our first session of Collage College! Chris and I had a blast and LOVED our first group of attendees. Next week: our special Halloween Class! EEEEEEEEEEEK!
They are ALL so gorgeous!!! I love this idea for coasters too ~ makes me want to solder! I love too many things.....have a wonderful day Maggie! xxoo, DawnReplyDelete
marg, I think I know where my soldering gun is. I want to make stuff!ReplyDelete
