A Box of Milagros (Art Affaire)





Thursday's class...Box of Milagros..... taught by Beckah Krahula.....(photo above)
Judy....Vicci...Beckah....Jenny...Roberta...Yvonne... Gina.......
This class started at noon and went all day until 6pm...then we all walked just a few steps up the street to Tomei's for dinner....I didn't get home until after 10pm.....one full of information....full of food... tired girl! The class was fabulous! I learned to do "Reposse" on metal.....I made "milagros". Anyone not knowing what milagros are.....small images typically carved from metal..they can also be found in wax, bone, wood, or paper. The word Milagros means miracle. Created as a thank you for an answered prayer, they can be found world wide and can be traced as far back as the classical Greek period.
Below are some samples of making the milagros and some of the 'tools' of the trade.
I still have Saturday's trade show...and, "The House of Cards" photos to post...will try to do that later. I am taking Ty today to see "Underdog" at the movies! I am way behind on reading blogs...hope to read them later...XXXXXOOOOOOOOOO

WOW, I didn't see a new post for a couple days now I had a lot to catch up. Looks like Art Affaire was a success. I love those metal worked books, love to know what tools you used. I am anxious to hear more about the event and any other classes you took.
Those dancing stars on the lake photo is AMAZING...it really sparked me an idea for some art.
Remember it's not a birhDAY it's birthday SEASON. It isn't over yet you know. heehee!!
Lots of love, hope to talk soon!
XOXO
