Chicago Workshop

I was in Chicago this week teaching an amazing group of ladies formed of teachers, store owners and reps. We had fun working with metals and Stencils, provided by Lynell Harlow of Dreamweaver, who also attended the workshop.

Pewter Necklace

This was one of the projects done in Pewter. We used the background Mosaic stencil LJ901, paper stump, Basic kit and Patina.

These 4 other necklace samples were done with our Embossing Plates for Backgrounds and pewter.

Heart Whimsy

This was the first project (out of 6) the group did.  They used Red Aluminum and Stencils LL599 and  LG628.  I love the contrast between the red plain color and the Dogwood Background stencil.
They used  the following MercArt's products: Basic Kit, paper stump, Screw and Cup Stamping Tool, Fiber Glass, Red Aluminum and suede.  Other items: sanding block to remove the color off the background and main embossed areas.

Thank you ladies for a wonderful workshop. You are a very talented goup of artists!
