I wanted to share my finished piece of Art from a class I took from my precious friend Lisa or Tarnished & Tattered back in September. This was my first venture out after hubby’s surgery/recovery & it was so great to be with my friends & to laugh, talk & create. So, I’m sharing (sorry it’s a bit late but, better late than never) this special day with you today at Kathleen’s WHITE WEDNESDAY Since Lisa gave us mostly wonderful whites & creams to work with it seemed perfect for this.
Lisa’s class sample above.
It all began with our class kit but, Lisa brought lots of extra goodies for us to dig in & use. She is such a generous talented sweet soul. You can see Lisa & Maureen (who owns Cottage Panache where the class was held) getting ready for us to start.
But, first let me introduce you to my precious friend Charlotte Perez. Charlotte & I were so surprised to see each other at this class because we usually see each other at Gilded Life Events. But, this one was held in Fort Worth instead of Dallas so it was a huge shock. So… we squealed in delight when we found out we got to spend the day together. Let me show you one of this Dynamo’s AMAZING creations that she was wearing that day.
She made this after she learned the technique in the first class at Gilded Life when we met back in February. GOSH that seems like forever but, it hasn’t been! Wow girl… how far we’ve come & what we’ve learned. Go HERE to see a post about that event & some of the other amazing things created there. But, I’m getting off course. Let’s get back to what she made at this class.
A tiny vintage shoe that she brought & added that amazing BLING to. The tiny little perfume bottle (thanks to Lisa) & a photo of Charlotte as a child.
AMAZING as always girlfriend!!!!! Now, let’s look at some of the others.
Sorry for the glare of the convex mirror. There is no way to take a photo without that.
I love this close up that shows the old letter from Lisa’s Grandfather to her Grandmother (printed onto linen) which starts out “Little Darling”. And you can see the letterhead of the Imperial Hotel in Atlanta Georgia in the background. And the beautiful lace is from a piece of a wedding gown that Charlotte shared with everyone in class.
A saying I stamped at the bottom of my piece says it all…
“What you do today is IMPORTANT because you are exchanging a day of your life for it”
Not the best photo of all us girls… but, we’re happy souls for we created a beautiful piece of art. THANK YOU LISA! And thank you Kathleen for hosting another White Wednesday. Be sure & go HERE to see others who participated today.
