Hello lovely Owls,
Brrrrr, I hope you’re all keeping toasty warm in this wintery weather! Our next meet is approaching – Saturday 30 July – so here are some details for you. I’m a bit excited about this one!
We’re going to give scrabble tile pendants a go this month. Aren’t they pretty? There are quite a few tutorials on the web (I’ll link to several at the end of this post), and of course an image search will throw up dozens of examples.
from makes and takes
Because you need a few specialist supplies and only a little bit of them, we’ll provide kits for those who want them this month. For $5 you will get the makings of 3 pendants: wooden tiles, bails (the little bit that makes them into a pendant) or brooch pins, glue and glaze.
You will need to provide the image you want to put on the tile – either paper or fabric. Remember that your tile is only 1.5 cm square, so look for an image or pattern that will fit on the tile to give the look you want. A chance to hit the scrapbooking paper stand!
Now, the glaze takes around 48 hours to dry properly, so you will need to bring a small container to transport your drying tiles home in – a takeaway container, for example.
Please rsvp in the comments, and tell us if you need a kit so we can make sure we have enough supplies. As usual, there is a $5 fee to cover the hall hire, and please bring a plate to share for afternoon tea.
So to recap:
Saturday 30 July, 2pm – 4pm $5 for hall hire & bring a plate $5 for kit – please mention in rsvp Paper or fabrics for your pendant image A small container to transport them home inRSVP in the comments!
We do hope to see you there!
