Paper Medallions…

Dec 7, 2010

Well since yes­ter­day, I showed you my favorite Crepe Paper and Glit­ter artist, today, I decid­ed to show you my favorite Paper Medal­lion Artist… who just so hap­pens to love Crepe Paper too. Gosh how fun would it be to sit at a table with these two and cre­ate… I would LOVE that! Maybe some­day… here is to wish­ing!

Sat­ur­day, while co-teach­ing the snow globe project with Trisha, Ann-Denise Ander­son of Whim & Fan­cy Designs was teach­ing in the next room. I’ve loved her work for such a long time. Ann-Denise has been fea­tured in sev­er­al issues of Som­er­set mag­a­zine and since the moment I laid eyes on her work I’ve hoped to meet her. Our paths just nev­er seemed to cross at the same time so you can imag­ine my excite­ment when I found out she and I were teach­ing at The Crafty Scrap­per the very same day. All I can say is oh my good­ness is her “Nut­crack­er Suit Paper Medal­lion” class incred­i­ble.

Her class end­ed as mine and Trisha’s was break­ing for lunch so I ran over to meet her and see all the fin­ished projects cre­at­ed by her stu­dents. I was speech­less… they were all so unique and GORGEOUS. If you ever have the chance to take a Paper Medal­lion class you want to make sure and take it from Ann-Denise as she is the orig­i­nal cre­ator of this gor­geous art piece. Dur­ing her class she taught her stu­dents paper manip­u­la­tion tech­niques and inspired them to use bits and pieces of bro­ken glass as well as tat­ter­ing and smol­der­ing tulle & lace. She even pro­vid­ed extra good­ies to add to their project. As you can see by the pho­tos below Ann-Denise is tru­ly an awe­some instruc­tor. Just look at what her stu­dents cre­at­ed.

Ann-Denise is right when she says, you will want to make dozens of these to dis­play through­out your home! I sure do. Her cre­ations are cer­tain to add ele­gance and beau­ty to your home this Hol­i­day Sea­son!

I know The Crafty Scrap­per has a few kits left for sale if you would like to make one of her Orig­i­nal Paper Medal­lions. I cer­tain­ly grabbed my kit. There were going to be some seri­ous tears shed if I did­n’t get one. Each kit comes pack­aged in an adorable box and includes step by step instruc­tions and all the won­der­ful good­ies need­ed to cre­ate your very own Ann-Denise Orig­i­nal Paper Medal­lion.
