Here is the Project Kit for this month - when I went to Phoenix to teach at Melrose Vintage, Wendy, Diane's daughter, was sitting in the back of the class glittering the ledger alphas for much of the time. I was amazed at how accurate she was and I loved the technique so I incorporated it here (thanks for the inspiration Wendy)! I'm not sure how she did it, but I used a tiny paintbrush with clear glue to fill in the letter, sprinkled on the glitter, and then used a Q-tip cut off at an angle to clean up the edges so they were perfect (almost)! You get enough of everything to make two of these little accordion displays. It ties up on the long edge for easy storage. The pattern you see is FABULOUS old wallpaper I just found - rolls and rolls of it!!
So tonight at midnight, central time. See you there!

And. . . a new tablescape just in time for summer. . .
And, speaking of summer, I have a few more of these (the June Project Kit) up for sale (while supplies last)!
Happy Tuesday!! (oh- and you will see Doris's gallery and some additions to Rita's by tomorrow night for this month's PCK- still available)!
