Make Mine Mini

Here is another class that will be coming up soon at the Stampeddler in Northville Mi. I found these cute little 3" canvases on sale at Joann's one day and bought a ton of them to play with. Of course I had to do a steampunk one and the other one is just cuz' I thought it was pretty. I had fun playing with the metal patina paints by Sophisticated Finishes that create a rust or green patina finish. I used stencil paste, Perfect Pearls, metallic pastes, a bunch of clock parts, brass embellishments and the list goes on.

All Bottled Up

These little beauties are for an upcoming class that I will be teaching at Stampeddlers in Northville, Mi. I had actually already done the store samples already for love potions for Valentines day but I missed having them in the last newsletter to get them posted before Feb 14th. (Plus someone stole one of the samples from the desk when the store owner was putting them in the case.) So I made some bottles that were not Valentine themed to replace the one that was stolen and just kept going from there. I just used existing perfume label images that I have from a Dover book and decorated them with vinyl stickers, rhinestones and various baubles for the stoppers.
