Here are the final exercises that I wanted to complete from the class I took from Misty back in December.
In this one we were to do 4 different poses on the same page. It was an interesting exercise to say the least. I kept getting paint on ones I had finished. I get pretty messy when I am painting. It is sort of funny that you really don't see the big flaws in your work till you see a picture of it. I am happy that these are all finished now. I am ready to move on to other things for awhile.
I signed up tp take a class for the Cricut cutter at my local craft store. Today was the second class out of 4. The more I use this machine the more versatile I discover it is. Today we learned how to etch a pattern on to glass. First we cut out a pattern in vinyl and then used the negative image on a piece of glass and then added the etching material and transferred it to the glass. It was really simple. I also discovered besides using vinyl for lettering and etching, I ended up taking the image and putting it right on the cricut as a decoration. You can also make your own stamps and magnets and stencils. I think it will take awhile to run out of things to use this machine for. Tomorrow I'll show some of the things we have made so far.
