Hot Metal Mamas

What is that? It's a monthly class at our Little Blue House which focuses on Ten Seconds Studios art metal, using different tools and techniques each month.  Tracy teaches this so I had the opportunity to be a student rather than a teacher last night.  We made a cool fall project using a gold charger, embossed metal leaves and alcohol inks.  Each one turned out different, depending on which leaves and embossing folders were used as well as which alcohol ink colors were chosen.  This would be beautiful for Christmas also and could be adapted using patterned papers in lieu of the metal. Great gift idea!

Here's a closeup showing the embossed metal details - sorry about the glare. It was pretty darn hard to take photos of this shiny, gold plate!
