Metal Embossing!



Well, I just couldn't wait for TenSecond Studio so I traveled into the very traffic-filled area of Orange Park on New Year's Eve-day- and Donna, at A Small Cleverness (my favorite store) had everything you would need for metal embossing. There are so many tools it will make your head swim. The gals at TenSecond Studio also have tools but Donna's are better and she sells pewter sheets where TenSeconds sells aluminum. That's ok though because the alum is cheaper so I still ordered some of that too. I watched their instructional videos---which was frequently irritating--but never the less- informative.

This is very very fun to do and I think it has potential. I actually didn't adhere anything down on this piece -I just taped it on the see how it would look with something in the center. It's way cool FUN!!!
