More coasters for the art exchange







I have really enjoyed making these coasters, so I think I will be getting my paints and brushes out more often in the future.
For these coasters I used structure paints in gold, silver and copper, metal foil - the silber foil was the aluminium seal from a coffee-tin!, stazon and colour box inks, and bits and pieces from my workspace.
I have chosen four for the art exchange, and the rest will find their way to other destinations.
It was great fun to make, I love making a mess, and liked how they turned out,too.
Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

  1. I really love your altered coasters, Valerie, I was amazed when I saw the ones you did last week (and I was speechless until today, lol lol) and these are just as impressive. The 3rd one is my favourite, the pink one, but they are all so so great. Love the valentines easel tea bag card too, just beautiful, and thanks so much for offering the invoices, they will make fabulous backing papers. Have a good day! CoB
