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.
