my other Monday project

grandma_cindy(5)July 6, 2010

I am so tired from all the festivities yesterday, and the heat yesterday and today, I stayed in the house crafting this afternoon. The flamingo and other glass tower were 2 projects; here is #3 out of 4.

I've had these slate tiles for >5 yrs but hadnt done anything with it till now.

These are for my sons & their families for Christmas, but dont know if I can wait that long to give it to them LOL

Here is a link that might be useful:

So sorry your all worn out, but it sure didn't slow you down. The tiles are beautiful and very well done, I know they will be appreciated by your sons. The fact that you had them for 5 years gives me hope for some of my projects.

Great job on the tiles! They would have been awesome for the 4th of July ... but there is still Labor Day and Veterans Day if you can't hold out for Christmas. Ok, I gotta know ... did you paint the stars or are they stickers or stamps? They are so perfect! I'd have trouble with the lines without tape let alone be able to get little stars like that so perfectly shaped.

LOL Luna - they're stencils; and I did draw faint pencil lines with a ruler for the flag & lettering. Otherwise you'd have to lean your head sideways to read it! :-D

Very nice!
Aren't you an organized person to be making Christmas gifts now. I'm just thinking I'd better get going on something for this Saturday!
