I just love these tidy little tile and plaque projects! Another chance to one of my fav's, decoupage'! The Thanksgiving one was on wood with our Thankful Lists, and the peppermint striped little tiles started out as coasters, but we turned them into coffeetable art!

I originally designed this project when my DD was in kindergarten. Now, she taught this to her K-1 class! I made this hot pad out of wooly fabric and brown canvas. They printed their handprint in brown paint, added details, and TaaDaa! A Darling Turkey HotPad for Thanksgiving! The special secret is to add cinnamon, spice & herbs inside before sewing it closed so it add a delightful aroma when it holds a hot dish!
Fun memory...when I did these in kindergarten for my DD, I looked around the room after we finished and was shocked that every child had a brown smudge on their face! I realized they had been sitting there smelling the hotpad until the cinnamon had dusted through and covered their faces! Precious!
We made this pretty Pumpkin necklace with original artwork, beads and glass marbles!
So pretty for Fall, Thanksgiving, and cool weather dressing. The art was drawn on old pages of a thrift store book. The wool backing was from a felted sweater. Sweet!

The Little ones made this darling Ghost Halloween knot top! I made the black gingham knot top and they painted the face and added the bow. Scary Cute!
The big girls made a houndstooth tank with a Glitter Ghost! Glitter, Glitter Everywhere! (Pic Soon)
The next week we all made these Funky Fraidy Cat Stuffies! Soo Fun!!
We Love Halloween!

OK, these are last weeks projects. I am a little behind on posting...
The Little Bitties made these cute embellished hair combs to get ready for Halloween Wear! The Bigger Divas made a Literary Necklace, paper beads made from both decorative paper and pages from and old novel gleaned from the throw away pile at the thrift store. One of my Divas asked..."Queen La Diva, Were you SUPPOSED to cut up that book?" Yes, I stressed the importance of not cutting up valid books, and it did take me a while to get the nerve to cut this one, but it was destined to the trash, and I figured it could have a new life to be used in several of our projects. Actually one of my favorite hobbies is reading old thrown away books I dig out of discard piles. Some of my fav stories are from these unwanted treasures! Good Carline reading!

This is our class Tee Shirt! Since we are a group of girls who get together and create, I think of us as a sorority. So, I designed this tee with our "Greek" letters, to represent Di Va Do's DVD! Cute huh? By the way, I stenciled the shirts myself in hot pink with, of course, glitter!

We have been busy for a few weeks! I wanted to update everyone on our projects!
The Little Bitties made "Diva Dough", our version of pink play dough with glitter!
The Big Girls made an oil painted collage of a paper cupcake.
The next week, our cute terry Bath Mitts were a fun stitching and fusing project for both classes! The Little Bitties made a pig design and the Big Girls made a hip abstract blue and brown design. The older girls made a blue salt scrub to use in the bath as well!
This week we made these cute painting projects: LB's made the "Colorpillar", a color mixing exercise, that turned into a cute collage. The Biggies made this beautiful stenciled knit scarf with the Brown Chandelier design. I love the freezer paper technique!
Now I have to think of something to top all of this for next week!

This week, we made the darling "You Crack Me Up" picture frame project. First we painted a black frame with crackle medium, then pink (of course) paint. After the crackleing, we decoupaged random strips of torn decorative papers around the frame to add some texture and depth of colors & patterns. After sealing, we were ready to put our fav pics in our funky new frames! The older class was able to be more creative with the colors, and choosing their own decorative elements.

Our First class was....um....WOW!
We were fully packed with excited girls yesterday! We actually had alot more show up than we expected, so we even ran over in time to get everyone's project finished. So many cute girls, so many returning as well as newbies.
Our project was an adorable "Snap Link" necklace we made by snapping the vintage
1960's plastic snap links together in fun retro colors, and then adding a handmade pendant made from a wood base with decoupaged art paper and a fun vintage initial all tied up with cute fall ribbon! So cool and fun for back to school wear!
Thanks girls, we'll hand out tee's next week at class! ( I decided to wait until EVERYONE could get their shirt at the same time so no tears for the walk ins)
