Sweet Tiffany beginning the instruction for her Silhouette Class which was the third art class of the day.
A cute example of one of the finished projects. I'm sorry to say I don't know who did this adorable creation as we went around ohhhhing & awing each others work.
I do know that this is Jody's amazing silhouette next to Rosayln Sue's manni because I borrowed this photo from the amazing event photographer who was none other than the same Tiffany. See she is talented in soooooooooo many areas. Thanks for the photo loan Tiffany!
This was one of the example parasols done by our teacher & the Amazing Event Hostess Jennifer Hayslip. I love that she used a vintage linen dresser scarf with the belle in her petticoats for this. For the Vendor night I wore a jacket made from vintage linens which had a Belle on it too.
I borrowed this photo too & I think it is Amada's silhouette. I had to borrow it because I wanted to showcase her parasol next. I was just blown away by the talent of this sweetie. She sat at the table directly behind me so I kept having a chance to watch & photograph her artistic progress through out the day.
Here she is with her parasol. Isn't she a doll herself? Just had the sweetest soul & TALENTED BEYOND IMAGINATION! Her finished parasol! I love the fabric she chose don't you?
My friend Sylvia's parasol. Hope you go & visit her. She is new to blogging & home recovering from some surgery. So, I KNOW she would love a visit from you.
And Shelly's bright red white & black parasol was so different from any of the others. Click on the photo to enlarge so you can see the lady with the red feathered hat (lower right corner) & the vintage glove she added to give her creation Pazazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Good job Shelly.
And this is Cathy Scallise's parasol. Such pretty soothing pink & green colors. My parasol is not completed yet but, the fabric & trim is the same as Cathy's because we both borrowed from Jenn. I had so carefully packed my things to use on my parasol. I chose pink & green & had lots of buttons, vintage crocheted trim, lace, vintage gloves, earrings etc... all packed to go. Laying in bed the night before my flight I couldn't sleep & decided I would change my mind & do my parasol in black & white thinking that it would work better for a jewelry display at an upcoming show. I unpacked all the pink & green/packed black & white.... While visiting the Juliet Lowe Home on Friday, I even bought black lace gloves to use instead of my vintage tea colored gloves. Then the day of the Art Event I packed all my supplies into my tote bag. Well, I thought I did... When we got ready to pull out the supplies for the parasol class... I had left my fabric in my suitcase back at the hotel. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr so, sweet Jenn loaned me supplies & I ended up with a PINK & GREEN Parasol after all!
My sweet roommate Heidi hard at work on her parasol. Love the vintage soft colors she chose.
Remember in the last post I told you about the amazing Halloween Loving Kris Hurst? Well here's her parasol. Are you surprised that the COVEN is present here? She promises these vintage witches to be on her new Halloween CD in the fall. I can't wait Kris!
