Pieces of Time
I am so looking forward to the Paper Cowgirl Retreat coming June 9th – 11th. Paper Cowgirl is a retreat held every June in Waxahachie, Texas. You will find classes such as altered art, painting, soldering and more. This retreat even has a vendor craft show that I hear is really nice and filled with lots of wonderful items for purchase. This year, I will be the guest speaker. I’m always excited to help those who wish to break into the world of publication. So my speech “Artist to Author” will hopefully encourage and inspire many to jump out of their comfort zone and give their dream of being published a go.
I created an altered shadow box to teach exclusively at Paper Cowgirl. The altered project is titled “Pieces of Time” and each square is filled with bits and pieces of days gone by. You will work with sections from one of my tattered, antique family quilts, vintage ledger papers from the early 1900’s, precious mini tart tins, vintage shell buttons, trims, lace and other tiny baubles. Since you will be creating with vintage items some pieces will vary in color and shape but all will work perfectly with your project.
I will only be teaching this class once and the class is limited to 25 people, so if this sounds like something you would like to create please make sure you sign up as soon as registration is open. You do not want to miss out.
