This week was time for our Art Group to meet at Collected Treasures again. Our theme was Halloween. But, none of us worked on the same thing. Below you can see JoAnn & Cami working at their side of the table. Cami is new to our group & was such a great fit with everyone!
JoAnn & I9of course I loved them but, had forgotten about them until she reminded me) had seen a project in Sommerset using vintage photos & old spoons to create darling little Halloween Goodies. She is doing these for her daughter & granddaughters.
Look at that little cutie! It's JoAnn as a baby!!!!! Her girls are gonna love these!
This is an image that I printed off & gave her. This baby looks a little scared & wild eyed. Perfect for Halloween.
And here's the third one she finished. Again, it's baby JoAnn. The first one she did was done on an old spoon that had a black Bakelite handle(see it in the photo below). These other two were on old silver spoons.
Below is Carolyn's adorable Halloween House. She had this ready to bring to show us. She said she has GLITTER all over her house from making this & the Christmas Houses. She plans to sell them at Trade Days Oct 24. She also had a really cute wreath but, I didn't get a photo of that.
Carolyn was not going to work on anything when she first came in. Said she was just there to visit. But, Lisa brought her the sweetest photo & I asked her if she wanted to use my soldering stuff & do a necklace. She said YES!!!!!!!!!!! So below is the finished piece. So sweet! Pat gave her that old pearl from a stash of goodies she got at Cleburne's Antique Alley.
Here's Carolyn hard at work. I forgot my tile I like to work on so we improvised with an old tin Jana had. The girls from the Beginner's Solder Class I taught last week would laugh at that one. A bit rustic but, it worked!
And here's Rochelle working on her yarn project. I can't remember if it was knit or crochet but, she wanted over in the corner so her yarn would be on the rug & she had a bird's eye view of every one's "stuff: going on.
Ant there is Pat cleaning off her charm that she worked so hard on. She was dying to learn to solder & is planning on ordering her "Kit" next week. So, we had a little quickie class & she got the hang of it really fast. But, she's been watching me for weeks.
Here's Jana & Lisa at their table. Jana worked on pumpkins made from old chenille spreads. She thought she wanted white ones this year but, decided she wanted to tea dye them instead so, she just kind of watched everyone else that night. Ms Lisa was working on an assemblage also but, I didn't get to see much since I was at the other table.
Well, that's it for Art Group this month. We're still talking names for the group. Here's the suggestions so far 1. All By Hand 2. Sisters of the Sacred Glue Guns 3. DIVAS Diverse, Imaginative, Vivacious, Artistic, Sisters. What's your vote? Leave me a comment & let me know. Happy Creating Girlfriends!
