Diana Frey’s Briar Rose Class

Briar Rose Statue
For the Briar Rose Class you could do a piece of free standing art like Diana’s EXAMPLE above or…
Diana's Briar Rose Necklace
a necklace like her example here.
The concept is to build your box & then design the dress of Briar Rose which in encapsulated in the box.  Above is mine in the process.  Don’t you adore that paper?  My friend Vickie had printed it on some really cool paper with amazing texture.  Below is my dress. IT IS HARD TO WORK IN SUCH A SMALL SCALE!
But, it was fun too.  I’ll show you a few more pretty frocks made in class. 
Collage of dresses
Brigitte is shown holding her beautiful blue gown.  And Terry’s little green “Beach Girl” is so cute.  To the right is my buddy Vickie’s pretty creamy creation.
My friend Diana Salvucci’s amazing creation(sorry it’s a tiny bit fuzzy)is so detailed.  Look at the ribbon embroidery she did & the beads… Oh the details & believe me it is HARD to work in this scale.  I borrowed the photos below from Diana.  They are the finished pieces from that day.  Well, as finished as we could get that day… MORE UNFINISHED PROJECTS!!!!  Now I need to create the necklace part of Birthday Rose so I can wear her & remember this day each time I do.

When you are at Diana's… YOU KNOW you are in an Artist’s Studio
She is an amazing teacher & she gives her WHOLE HEART!!!!!   Tomorrow’s agenda… Remnants of the Past Antique Show.  But, as for this day… THE PERFECT BIRTHDAY!!! Surrounded by creating & friends… THANK YOU!!!!
HUGS! Charlene

Hi Charlene. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I am hooked on Graphic 45 papers. I've started buying their 12 x 12 paper pads instead of individual sheets and just mixing and matching away. Charlotte

How very beautiful, so many talented creators!!

Charlene, I LOVE your creation!! That little teeny tiny dress you fashioned is adorable--and soooo tiny. What a challenge that must have been, but it turned out so precious. The class with Diana looks like a slice of heaven!

Oh I'm so glad you got to do these wonderful things for your birthday! Fabulous pieces by everyone, and can tell it was a ball. Missed seeing you, but will get to soon! Lots of love, Riki

thanks for stopping by my blog-i've been checking yours out tonight-always fun :) I also see you are debating the Full Tilt Boogie class-If you haven't yet, i say go for it! I took it last yr and loved it. If you've never made books, you'll find her info very easy to follow and if you have, you'll be inspired to start a few new ones!
