Stepping Stones All Finished!

Monday, July 19th, 2010

As promised in the earlier video from this week, I decided to share some photos of the stones I had been working on that day. I am definitely not an expert in this and I’m learning new things all the time…especially from our amazing viewers! We have loved hearing your comments and ideas!

One viewer asked about what I do to prepare for laying my design. While there are many different ways of doing this, I actually love just to trace the container that I am using onto some white paper. Then I know my exact dimensions of what I will be working with. Then, like working a puzzle, I place my pieces all around until I find it has a great fit.

Now the finished pieces!

And do you have any pieces left from all your fun? If so, don’t throw them away! Just add to a container so that you have plenty to choose from for that next project!

Boy, I never thought breaking dishes with a hammer could be so theraputic. ;)

What other fun summer projects do you have going on right now? We’d love to hear!
