Theresa’s Workshop

Yesterday, Theresa hosted another great workshop and earned or bought everything on her wish list!  She was a very happy camper!  As always, you can click on a picture to enlarge it.

First, here I am demonstrating watercoloring standing up!  I showed how to color with reinkers and markers.

Then I showed how to stamp on candles.  Actually, you stamp on tissue paper, color the image, tear it out and apply it to a candle with waxed paper and a heat gun.  Jenni Mouer did a great tutorial on this years ago on Splitcoaststampers and they have since added a video to it here.  Pam took some pics of me as I demonstrated this cool technique.

It’s always a WOW moment when the image starts to melt into the candle and the colors pop!  Janice won this candle in a prize drawing.  I gave a completed candle project to Theresa as a hostess gift.

Connie, Pam and Linda had a good time!  Look at that cheese and fruit tray!

Janice, Theresa and Eleanor loved their make and takes.

We made a lovely black and white Christmas card with Scenic Season and a super easy one-layer card with Elements of Style.

I had two other drawing prizes, a little birdhouse and the little purse we made at Holly’s workshop.  Details on the purse are in the August 22, 2010, post below.

Here’s the birdhouse, modified from a box here. 

I got the idea to make it into a birdhouse with sweet treat cups from Valita at her August 16, 2010, post here. 

I think that covers everything and gives credit where credit is due.  Thanks for stopping by.  Comments always welcome!

What a fantastic workshop. I'll bet Theresa was totally thrilled. You made some gorgeous projects. Love them all. I will have to attempt the candle project in the future. I still treasure the candle you made for me.

First, congrats to Theresa, for such a successful workshop. Isn't it fun earning all that free stuff? Pam, thanks for taking the pics of our Miss Kathy giving her demo of candle stamping. Kathy is the best at coloring on that tissue paper. I absolutely love her candles. The make and takes were so simple, but so lovely. I especially love the Christmas scene. Wish I could have been there with a chance to win your lovely birdhouse or purse. Kathy, your workshops always look like so much fun.
