I saw these on the Dancing Mermaid site and then on Kim's too. Plus Olivia is doing a video series on how she gives hers away. I thought I would try my hand at them. Not all of these have their coat of modge podge on top yet. One thing is its amazing how long it takes to cover some rocks. I have several coats of red over one rock and its still not done. I had to switch to real paint cause the craft paint really is transparent in the red shades. FolkArt has some metallic paints that I have never seen before and I just love the colors.
I think McCabe's look better since her handwriting is awesome but I think all you need is the sentiment and they work. I plan on giving mine away at Christmas time and then may even leave some around town. I think it would be fun to have someone find just the word or phrase they needed to hear that day.
Please Vote for someone in my Mail Art contest. I think I have a tie right now so I need some more input. Please see the previous post and comment there. Thanks.
