From my vast array of scrapbook paper, metal charms, chipboard, brads, buttons, ribbon, and many other embellishments, each participant selected her own combination of colors and textures, creating a beautiful (and useful) garden pail as unique as the individual who made it.
So, instead of showing you my artwork, I thought this time I would share theirs:
Gotta love this fun, bold print!
Catch the sparkling chipboard butterfly!
Birds, trees & a ladybug--check!
Love the birdcage print with its strong brown & green colors!
After decoupaging (did someone say "pass the modge"?) and embellishing were complete, the garden pails were filled with soil peats, a small terra cotta pot (which they painted), flower & vegetable seed packets, planting instructions and a shiny red pail.
Although these pails make great gifts, I think my friends were going to keep their artwork for themselves!
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon...relaxing and being creative. I have to admit, I did end up keeping my garden pail. Thank you, Doreen...I'm looking forward to the next workshop!ReplyDelete
