Etsy Craft Party with the SD Craft Monsters

Back From Tomboctou
3564 Adams Ave. San Diego

In keeping with this year's theme, I'll be teaching the Vintage Watch Photo Keepsake. I got all inspired with my dad's picture, especially since that's the only picture I have of him when he was young. In any case, this is a great way to pay homage to a love one, and at the same time, an easy & fun project recycling old vintage watches

Here's what you'll need:

  • An old, vintage, non-working wrist watch.  The ones with metal hardware are easier to add color to, but if a leather strap one is all you got, we'll make it work too.  
  • A Black & White headshot.  Make sure to scan your photo and reduce it so that it will fit on the face of the watch.  Bring a photo paper print with several small images just in case we ruin one or two images.
All other materials, Mod Podge to seal the tiny photograph and patina for metal will be provided.  Something to consider is to add a charm or a tiny bit of glitter as well.  Now, if you have extra non-working, vintage watches that you would like to donate for this workshop, please let me know. Our crafters and I would appreciate it.
