Starting to feel some progress

May 27, 2010

well it is day 3 of resting the shoulder well honestly semi resting the shoulder and I am starting to feel some improvement. So I guess I really did need to rest the darn thing and since I have been only working on CHA samples I thought I would share some more of my favorite projects in my book.

Oh but first… those of you on the waiting list for my “Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend” technique class that I will be teaching at The Crafty Scrapper next month we have added another day. Here is the schedule for Friday, June 11th Noon “Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend” 6:00 “Tuscany and Roses” then Saturday, June 12th Noon “Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend” (Sold Out) So if you are on the waiting list and the new class time works for you give Carolyn a call 972.923.3151

This little snowman box was so much fun to make. I think it is a super cute way to store a mini album of winter photos. I have mine filled with photos of the girls out in the snow. Sadly I do believe Maya Road has discontinued this box and mini album… total bummer!

This is a little keepsake box for a special baby girl. You can store a little locket of her hair, her first lost tooth, baby bracelet etc. I created this using the Tim Holtz Fragment pieces, lots of Melissa Frances rubons and that wonderful resin crown. The box and buttons are by Maya Road.

This is one of my favorite altered projects. I think my Mom and Dad look so cute in this photo. Lots of German glass glitter and crepe paper rosettes.

This is what the frame looked like before I altered it… just a slight difference. Well I am off to do a little bit of laundry and some painting. I cannot wait for CHA sneak peeks. I think you all are going to be very surprised when you see one of my projects. It is so funky and whimsical… I just love it and cannot wait to share.  Oh and I had a GREAT private soldering lesson from Trisha Conlon yesterday. She teaches at The Crafty Scrapper. I am so excited to finally know how to make shadow boxes and her incredible flowers. I will take some photos and post them tomorrow. If you have the change to take a class from her you really need to do so.

    Hello! How do you make the cute snowman head? I have no experience working with clay or paper mache (at least not since I was a kid in art class) – any books you can recommend that give instructions? I would love to start something for this Christmas. Thanks!
