August Crafternoon

     It's a new month which means another fun night with the ladies at our monthly Crafternoon.  This time our host, Elizabeth, opened up her home to us for craft night.  We were welcomed with some yummy Mojito cocktails to start our evening.

Tonight's craft we made necklace, bracelet, or wine charms.
All you need are Scrabble tiles, Modge Podge, paintbrushes, paper cutter,
small printed images (found mine at InkFive), Diamond Glaze,
toothpicks, Exacto knife, E6000 jewelry adhesive, silver plated bails,
 and silver necklace chains.

Everyone getting their craft on!

First, I cut the picture images to fit on the Scrabble tile.
Paint on a little Modge Podge on the back side (side without letter).
Let dry 15-20 minutes.

Time for some snacks!

We enjoyed some Baba Ganoujh that Elizabeth made,

 and some Farro Salad with Creamy Feta Sauce that Jennie made.

So while I waited for my tiles to dry I enjoyed
 the lovely smell of some beautiful Butterfly flowers, 
the freshness of my minty lime Mojito, 
and piled plate of yumminess!

After my tiles were try, I applied a thin layer of Modge Podge on top 
of the image and along the sides....then let dry 15-20 minutes again.
When they are dry apply the Diamond Glaze (DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE,
make sure to put a few drops on a piece of paper to get the bubbles out first).
Evenly cover the trimmed paper tiles with a generous amount of glaze,
spreading gently with a toothpick, which can also be used to pop any bubbles.
Let the glaze dry completely!  You can apply a 2nd coat if needed.
After they are throughly dried apply a small amount of the jewelry 
adhesive to one of the bails then attach it to the back (letter side)
of the tile.  Let aside to let adhesive dry.

While the tiles dry, time to enjoy some dessert!
Elizabeth got creative with her drying style.

Marisa brought some delightful cream puffs, 

and I made a Pumpkin Spice Kulfi garnished 
with caramel, walnuts, and Angie's Salted Caramel Popcorn.

These are Marisa's beautiful creations!

And look at Jennie's!

Now to find the perfect chain to put our pretty charms on, that's it!
This was another great Crafternoon!
