Hi All,
Starting Monday I will have uploaded several videos on how to:

1. Age Tinsel/ Chenille Stems, etc.
-Have you ever wanted to buy vintage tinsel, but its too expensive, or found reproductions that are still expensive or sell out, I have a solution for that, with a few simple steps you will have that aged tinsel, this method will work on any color tinsel or pipe cleaner/chenille stems you have, and any thickness.

2. Age your glitter projects, silver glitter, etc.
-Learn how to make bright silver glitter or beautiful Martha Antique glitter look 50 years old.

3. Make your own glitter and mica flakes, 3 different ways from stuff in your house.

4. Age Crepe Paper, Paint it, stamp it, the works in this video.

5. Make a Vintage German ornament from scratch in less then 30 minutes.

All these videos will be available on my blog and flickr site this week, starting monday!


Magic and Joy!
Lisa!

SO glad, I will be showing you variations of each, its so much cheaper to age dollar store chenille stems or craft store ones with these techniques, I'll also be posting the written tutorial as well!

HUGS!
