I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!! I HAVE 5 WHOLE DAYS OFF FROM THE SHOP, (THANK YOU BONNIE). FOR VARIOUS REASONS, I HAVE HAD TO MAN MY SHOP ALONE. EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A LANDFILL TYPE STUDIO AT THE SHOP, I GET VERY LITTLE DONE IN THE WAY OF CARRYING OUT AN IDEA. I NEED TO CREATE AND I WANT TO BLOG, SO HERE IS WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT TODAY!..............I BOUGHT THESE VERY PHONY LOOKING VIOLETS FOR .25 AT A MICHEAL'S CLEARANCE A LONG TIME AGO. WHY? DON'T REMEMBER!I DECIDED I WANTED SOME RUSTED METAL FLOWERS FOR THE FOLLOWING PROJECT. WELL, THERE ARE NONE! AND IF THERE WAS ANY, THE COST WOULD BE PROHIBITED. SO I EXPERIMENTED WITH THIS BUNCH BY RUSTING THEM WITH A RUSTING SOLUTION. I LIKED THE WAY THEY TURNED OUT.



I ALSO HAD A DOZEN FRENCH, SEMI-RUSTED PASTRY CONE THINGIES THAT I WANTED TO MAKE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS OUT OF. ALSO A HUGE HANDFUL OF VINTAGE, METAL TINSEL THAT I LOVED, BUT NEEDED TO STOP HOARDING!


ANY WAY, THIS IS THE RESULT. I MIGHT ADD SOMETHING ELSE TO THESE, BESIDES A HANGER OF COURSE. I HAVE TO LOOK AT THEM FOR AWHILE.

Hi, I know what you mean about time off from the shop! Much as I love mine, I need to have a bit of distance if I want to do anything else! Your creations look great ... a little bit of magic:)
