What I Made for Christmas

by Allison of Fraske Designs

I decided to make some coasters out of some leftover cork that I had. I had enough to make about twelve. I have this pretty blue block printing paint that I’ve never used, so I decided to use that along with white, silver, and gold for a fun holiday color scheme.

Combined with a hand carved rubber stamp of a leaf I made a while ago and an intricate square block stamp I have in my collection, I experimented with the combination of paints, colors, and images and really like what I came up with. It took some trial and error (you can’t see the errors because I painted over them!) but the final coasters are a fairly uniform set of blue leaves on white backgrounds with gold and silver accents. The perfect little extra for some of my loved ones!

While I think they look lovely on my living room end table next to our framed picture of the Keaton Family, I think they will end up in someone else’s home after the holidays!
