Like I promised I made some more magnets. I created the design in Photoshop, used only black ink and a little acyclic paint for color. Image transfers are pretty fun, you never really know how they are going to turn out. These three are for sale in my Etsy Shop, along with many other goodies.

Bottle Cap Coasters

I have been collecting bottle caps for years and finally put them to good use. I have attached caps from beer and soda to cork and masonite bases to create one of a kind coasters. Each cap has been varnished for protection. Most have a theme; such as blue, black, red, etc… All coasters are roughly 4 inches in diameter.   They make a great gift idea for your favorite beer lover and can be found in my Etsy Shop.

Fifty-nine

Day fifty-nine I was working on some photo magnets, which you can see in the background. They are a relatively easy craft using flat glass marbles, photos, drawings, magazine cutouts, whatever and small button magnets. I use my own photos and art. I have 10 years of film prints stacked up in my art cabinet and this is a great way to reuse them for something creative. Here is my hand cutting out a circle of an image. I enjoy making these. They look pretty cool when they are complete. See below for a photo of completed magnets.
