Challenge Title: Milagros - Folk Art Traditions
rgrohall (I'm Rebecca!)
Keyword: FF16rgrohall

Monday, October 17th

***************CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION*******************

On a recent trip to the Land o’ Lydia (aka Texas) while shopping, I came across a whole wall of Milagros metalwork for your home (or office). Now you are probably wondering -what is a milagro? Milagro means "miracle" and once upon a time milagros represented wishes and thanks offered in prayers. They are traditional Hispanic folk art.

Your card challenge is to incorporate metal, foil, tin, metallic cardstock or even metallic paint into your project. Choose a traditional “Milagros” symbol of a heart, eyes, hands, crowns, praying figures or other objects with a symbolic meaning. Holidays are a wonderful time for us to give thanks or ask for prayers for family and friends.

Some ideas of ways you can work this into your project:

·Embossing on Metal (this Splitcoast Tutorial shows you the basics: http:////
·Metallic card stock (pattern created, attached)
·Aluminum foil adhered to cardstock
·Jewelry charms
·Metallic paint
