Another impromptu craft night, this time Melanie, Tiffany and I. I’m loving craft nights. It seems to be the only way I get anything done! Tiffany had bought some little tin – OK, aluminum – heart molds, so the three of us put our own touch to one. It’s so interesting to see the different ideas for — Valentine decorations from tin heart molds……..
A concentrating Tiffany. Melanie had just stepped out of the picture.
Mine, Tiffany’s and Mel’s.
I took closeups, but the background made them too confusing to look at. I’ll try to get closeups of Tiff’s and Mel’s in the next couple of days. They’re worth a closer look. Here’s a closeup of mine.
We all started with the same shape mold and we all used stained cheesecloth as a base. Tiffany and Melanie got their graphics from The Graphics Fairy. Mine was a copy of a picture I had lying around. Mel and I used lace and glitter and jewelry pieces and she used a silver cord. Tiff used a fabric yo-yo, red check fabric strip, bit of lace and buttons. I hope I can get closeups of theirs tomorrow! They each made a bottle, too. (I tried, but had an…. ahem…. artist’s block. Ha!) Again I took closeups, but the lace background did nothing for seeing the details of the bottles. When I get the heart pictures, I’ll take bottle pictures. Personally, I like to see them in place anyway.
Pictures of Melanie’s heart and her bottle:
The red hanky says “Lipstick”
Tiffany’s heart and bottle:
Love the glitter on the feather!
