Here are some pictures from the RNEST Etsy Craft Party!
We didn't have a huge turnout...June 6th was the first Friday of the month, and "First Friday" is a big thing in the art community in Rochester. There are lots of different events going on around town, and many of our RNEST members had committed to being at First Friday events. But the people that showed up to the Craft Party had a lot of fun getting creative with old pictures!
We colorized black and white photos with watercolors (this works best if the photo is printed on cardstock. The watercolors don't take too well to regular photo paper)
We also used embroidery floss and stitched on the photos (which was a "suggested project" for the party on the Etsy blog)
|I went a step further and added buttons to my project that I did at home.|
And there was also the "fairy nest jar" project...
We used one of the large classrooms at our local Joann Fabric & Craft stores. (Did you know you can reserve a classroom for free as long as there's not a class scheduled?)
Here's a look at some of the finished projects!
