The kids are back to school and even though it's still hot here it's still starting to feel like Fall -
My favorite time of year!
I have been wanting to learn how to stamp into metal so a couple of months ago I ordered a cute owl stamp. I went online and looked at tutorials and then practiced on some blank circles of metal. After some practice I stamped real brass charms with my one stamp - the owl. The stamping isn't hard, but the antiqueing and polishing afterwards is a quite a bit of work. I'm thinking this may be my only stamp I ever get! Here are a few of the designs I came up with:
|Then I made a brass charm bracelet with some other charms I have been collecting over the summer.|
This could be worn all the way until Thanksgiving!
I can't wait for those sunny but crisp fall days!
