This is a shot of part of her display. Amazing old sheet music & a vintage suitcase full of lace for the students to use while creating.
And this is what the students place setting looked like. At each place was an amazing pocket containing class instructions & images. An adorable notebook, pencil, ink, a little bunch of fresh herbs tied together with a little string (you should have seen the carpet in the hotel room where we all gathered to visit while she created these... what a mess but, it sure smelled good) & last but not least... in the top corner of this photo you see the candy bar she made for each person covered in the cutest western image. Isn't she just too clever?
A little mosaic of a few of the class kits. EACH ONE UNIQUE! And she hand made each one. If you go HERE she does a tutorial on how to make these amazing creations.
A close up of the notebook created for each student to jot down tips & ideas in.
Here are a few of the different completed projects by some of the students in class. The one at the top left is one of my favorites. I can't remember the artists name but, this is a photo of her Dad when he was in the Navy. And the sheet music she used to place under the transfer was titled A Sailor's Song. LOVE IT!!!!!
Here is another favorite of mine. I THINK the artist was my friend Cathi Bruhn (who was so much help to me in my Digi Girl Class later the next day). I ADORE the photo of the little boy on the pony. Again, I believe I remember her saying this was a family photo also. Cowboy UP! Great job Cathi.
And here are the two beauties created by my sweet friend Pat of My Tattered Elegance. I LOVE how they both turned out.
And sweet Keely did an amazing job on her project too! Well, darn it... I had a photo of my friend Anne's treasures & project but, in trying to load these (too late) last night & my hubby coming in to bug me about "is it time to go to bed yet"... I guess I didn't get it loaded. Sorry sweet Anne of Fiona & Twig it was beautiful (maybe I'll do just a teaser post with it one day).
On to my class with Laverne Johnson. Here she is getting ready for class. What fun we had. We did a pocket book project in her class. Did I finish????? NO!!!!!!!! Of course not. But, it was a fun class & maybe while Hubby is recovering I'll get it finished. Below is a collage of some class shots. The top left being the teachers finished book.
The bright yellow seed sacks were cut to be used as place mats at each table. And then Laverne stitched each of us an adorable bag to be used & to hold our class supplies & notes. CLEVER GIRL & she must feed LOTS OF BIRDS at her house. Love that up cycle idea. And in that bag was a zip lock bag of the best Texas Trash (yummy snack of pretzels, nuts, M&M's all covered in melted white chocolate). She shared the recipe with us in an email after class. I'll ask her if I can pass it along to you.
That sweet smiling face is none other than Mendy Mitrani that taught the MUCH NEEDED Digi Girl Class. What a patient, kind, BRAVE girl she was to take 19 of us computer illiterates & put us in a class to teach us Photoshop Elements. To say she had her hands full was an understatement. But, she was amazing!!!! Thank you Mendy!
Hard at work! Yep the photo below is me working on the post card (photo below) & banner that I designed in class. You can see the banner HERE.
Using a few skills learned in Mendy's class this cute post card was created with out very much hair loss (from pulling it out of my head since Photoshop Elements still frustrates the bejebbers out of me).
Thank you for letting me share a few more shots & fun at Paper Cowgirls. Thank you Cindy for putting together such a fun creative time for us to get together & craft. As well as make & meet some wonderful friends. Have a great weekend. HUGS!
