Welcome back to Tutorial Thursdays on Marigolds' Loft.
Week 6 - I can't quite believe it, and thank all of you who link up here and share your amazing crafts with us all. The little group is growing weekly which I am very grateful for :)
Let me kick off by showing you the 3 most visited links from last week.
1. Five Pointed Origami Star with Money by Crystal from Make it Easy Crafts
This is such an wonderful, original way to gift money.
2. Letter Stones by Chesley at Buggy and Buddy
Such a wonderful alternative to lettered tiles, nicer to look at and I am sure play with :)
3. Turkey Treats by Katey from The Crafty Blog Stalker
This has to be the sweetest, yummiest turkey for Thanksgiving, right kids?
Thank you so much for participating, your links were so wonderfully creative and it is my pleasure to feature them here.

I will showcase the 3 most visited links next Thursday.
Using your finger smudge all the colours together.
Allow to dry.
Once dry place the plexi-glass on top of the empty fruit tin on a baking tray. The painted side facing up.
Place your baking tray into a pre-heated oven at 150 Degrees Celsius.
Do not move away from the oven, you need to watch your project as depending on the thickness of your plate it could go quickly!
You will note that as soon as your plate is warm enough it will start to droop on the sides. This is when you should remove the project from the oven.
As you can see, my oven does not heat evenly so some of the paint started to bubble whilst waiting for the other side to heat up. I don't mind it as it will add to the overall texture and look afterwards, but if this is not wanted, turn your plate in the oven once it starts to droop.
Whilst the plate is still hot you can push and form it to your liking.
BEWARE: it can get very hot!!
Once shaped allow to cool completely.
Now you can turn over the plate and continue to decorate it.
With flash - looking good already ;)
Using Dekopointers* decorate the edges.
And there you have it.
A funky table deco that you can create to enhance any table setting for any season :)
I can't wait to see what you have been up to this week.
Link up your projects below.
Until next week.
I will be sharing this with all my creative Link Ups.
