Here's what Alisa had to say about her tutorial:  Recently I met up for a day full of fun with my friend and fellow artist Jane LaFazio. We met at Liberty Station; n San Diego and visited Visions Art Museum, took lots of photos, ate a fabulous lunch and exchanged materials to create with. I gave Jane a bag full of painted canvas scraps and Jane gave me a whole bunch of denim and ribbon scraps. I knew right away I would put these scraps to use for a holiday gift tutorial- a set of fiber coasters.
