_Smiley Face Here_

Lookie Lookie!! It's gonna be a Senior Craft Class project eventually, but today this small pin was the "make and take" T & I did at the Stamp & Scrap Expo!

Eco Art Board
Stamp of choice
Inks of choice
Clear Micro Beads
Sticky Sticky Tape
small glass marble/bead
Thermal Foil Rolls

It's a 1-1/2 inch square, edged with the thin sticky tape (which is double-sided), which as metal foil along the side (which you can't see) - I chouse a brilliant blue. Stamp the white Eco-Art Board & color. (I used regular colored pencils). Then use the 1-1/2 inch sticky tape and attach to the top of the colored image. Attach the bead/marble, then dip in a container full of the clear beads. Attach the jewelry finding to the back.

Seriously a very cool effect, with very little effort!!

T & I had a nice day at the expo - and of course I come back all inspired!!

Right now I'm working on getting all my craft class photos in one place, so I can create a tri-fold brochure to explain who I am, what I do, and why it is necessary for Senior Citizens to have activities, and why someone should pay me for it.

I also found out what an ATC is today -- Artist Trading Cards - with very specific dimensions for crafty people and artists to exchange in person or by mail.

It is so easy to just look at all the cool stuff, and not actually do any creating (just buy all the tools...), so today was fun for the productivity we got to participate in!
