Coaster Art

Hi, it's Nora Anne here today sharing a little mini Coaster Art with you! Creative Cuts and More sells square and round Coasters in packs of 10. They are awesome to have on hand for cute little mini albums and home decor items!
I made this inspirational art for my cousin. She just found out she is being laid off after 11 years at her job. This quote was the perfect sentiment for her and the coasters were the perfect foundation for this piece. I inked the background of the coaster with Ranger Distress inks, then sprayed with Glimmer Mist. You can't tell in the picture but it's super shiny and shimmery and beautiful in real life! Wanna know the coolest thing about these coasters?! You can die cut them and make your own chipboard shapes ~ another great reason to keep extras on hand! The cute little bird is die cut from a Tim Holtz die, then inked, misted and stickled up!
Thanks for visiting today, leave a message and let me know if you like my Coaster!

I love your coaster, and I'm sure that your cousin will love it as well. I hate to hear about her job, and will pray that everything does work out for the best! It usually does! When we are in the midst, it doesn't seem so, but when we look back some time later, things look so different. I'll send up some prayers for a better job to open up for her!

I didn't think about die-cutting the coasters! Great tip!
