Try It Tuesday~with Trudy:)

Hi everyone~glad to be blogging today.  Had a big scare yesterday but all is good thanks to Julie Tucker Wolek I won't go into it, but just to say,  if Google asks for your cell phone numbe ~give it to them or they will disable your blog until you do:):):). I learned the hard way!!!

These are pins I made using egg shells and I learned this over at True's Gifts From The Heart!!  This girl is on Helmar's design team { Trudy Sjolander} and is pretty crafty!!  She posted these on her blog and I asked her if I could share the technique on my blog.  She has an amazing tutorial on her blog that will walk you through step by step.

These are the two pins I did ~a heart and butterfly using these~EGG SHELLS{yep, from a chicken}!!

I did mine a little different~I used Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas to cover my Tim Holtz's grunge paper.  I used things I had and they worked fine. I used Helmar's decoupage to adhere the egg shell and then put a coat of sealer over it to give it a glossy shine.  I hope you will go see the video up on her blog~HERE is the direct link. Please tell her I sent you!!!
and my news~I'm a Vintage Street Market Design Team!!!  Have a great day~ I'm sure gonna try to have one!! See ya soon!!
