Are you gettting sick of quick posts? Sorry…but this old dog is whooped and I have stamp club tomorrow. Today was an amazing day, and I think everyone had a great time at Spring Fling, we had Demonstrators from PA, NM, even Canada, not too shabby eh?
I'll share one of my favorite things I think from the day, I know when I saw Linda Barnes demo these at Regionals I knew this had to be a make n take for Spring Fling.
This is aluminum flashing and 12 gauge wire we got at Lowes, and my sweet hubby cut the flashing so I could run it through the big shot and he also made up some sort of jig in the barn to bend all the wire stakes. He teased and said "couldn't you buy aluminum wire?" and I was like "that is what Linda said to get!" I sprayed the flashing flower white with metal spray paint. You want to primer it first.
Thanks Linda for teaching us this. A special Thanks to honey bunny Jeff for helping get this make n take ready for the day. I love you, as do all the 102 ladies that came to Spring Fling!
Here is what the packaging looks like for the flashing and the wire.
Dies used were Original Dies, Ovals 2, Blossom Party
Misc: Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing folder (free with a $50.00 order), Cropadile, Black Bauble, SAB brad, chalkboard vinyl for decor elements
Keep in mind this is metal and it is sharp, so I would not let your kids help with this project. I was wondering what copper would look like and stick them in the garden and if they would turn color to a petina or something?
I hope you have been enjoying the Spring Fling make n takes so far. I need to take pictures of my metal display…I forgot to and my body is saying Go To Bed!!!
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.
