The class I got into was called Heart and Soul - and we created a wonderful box with a heart inside covered in faux riveted metal. Basically - I wanted to go to learn new techniques - so it didn't matter which class I got into (although I would have loved to attend them all!)
So we came into this rather large room - I heard there were 100 people at each class - there were three rows of tables from front to back - this is the center row where I had a seat about 2/3rds of the way down - this was taken about half way into the room.
Compendium of Curiosities books and the aprons that we were given by Kate the owner of the shop.
Here's Heather, Tim and me.
and here's Tim and me (lot's of pictures were being taken!)
cardboard boxes with Distress Stain inks, I used Silver (these are window boxes with little boxes inside but we took those out) then we inked over them with Distress Inks, I used Forest Moss - then we sanded all the sides to distress - and attached pulleys on the bottom for wheels.
silver metal foil sticky back sheets. Then we made marks along the seams - some with the tip of a click it ink pen, some with a push pin and some with a craft scraper. We made the stitches using loops of thin wire that we just inserted into the holes! Next we inked the whole thing with 3 colors of Alcohol Inks -I used Pitch Black, Stonewash and Ginger. Isn't this the coolest thing??! Oh - and then we sanded it with steel wool to take most of the color off!
We lined the inside of the box with Terminology tissue wrap
We added Box Corners, sprocket gears, word keys, game spinners, time pieces and a light bulb - and even half of a View Master photo wheel! He must have gotten those at an antique shop!
Here's Heather with her finished creation - everyone did theirs with slightly different colors and adhering all the 'stuff' in different places which Tim encouraged of course!
and here's me with mine!
Here are a few pics I took at home for a close up view!
That's a piece of rusty screen across the bottom of the box.
