Back in November I was lucky enough to be one of 6 gals to take a class at Cottage Panache with my buddy Lisa of Tattered & Tarnished. There were just 6 of us in this class & we had so much fun creating together. I had been eager to learn about using the wax on these bottle. Of course so many of you know that Lisa was published in Somerset for these little jewels (these in the photo were our class samples).
Above you will find sweet Lisa the day of the class holding another of her creations. And the photo next to that is the class kit. She had a hand written card for each of us & had decorated that beautiful match box with a Madonna & Child.
Inside each kit was little snippets of wonder. And then she let us play in her “stash” of goodies to pick other things we wanted to use. Let’s look at a few of the bottles. A close up of my friend Charlotte's bottle is above. And then another sweet friend Jan made the lovely below. Jan is sooooooo funny & is the angel that fixed the most amazing 4 hour champagne holiday lunch for Cami & I. Oh how much fun is it to find someone who knows “HOW TO DO LUNCH”! She is a very talented gal & a little birdie told me she just might be working up a class to submit to Paper Cowgirls Art Retreat! IF ONLY SHE WOULD BLOG MORE!!!!! Don’t you love the vintage image she chose & the black millenary?
And Lori’s bottle. The crystal elements really made this one shine. Love the glass ring as well as the chandi crystal backed with sheet music.
Below you can see that Tonda used an old watch & just wired it to the chandi crystal.
An old porcelain door knob for the top. Wonderful printed image (an old document)on linen fabric drapes the bottle, vintage tulle, an old watch works, black velvet leaf with an OLD rhinestone button. The little silver tray with the resin bobble of the two sisters. The words… FOR THE LOVE OF SISTERS. I had plans for this little project.
You can see Lisa’s post about the class HERE.
Above is the finished bottle with the photo provided by Sandy. Sandy had sooooooooooo wanted to come to this class but, since she had just been here from California the month before her boss was not seeing the humor in her need. Since I have no relationship with my only sibling & she has nosiblings… we adopted each other. What could be more appropriate as a Christmas gift for her? I added the little Frozen Charlotte doll & sent it off with LOVE! I hope you enjoyed the little peek into class. THANKS LISA!
