Quilted Memories

Class Description: In this class Quilted Memories you will paint and alter a 5” x 5” wooden shadow box using a beautiful butter cream colored acrylic paint and vintage sheet music. You will accent the back of the shadow box using stamps from my Antiquated Collection Line which I’ll be sharing so you can personalize the back as you wish. Inside each 1.5” square you will attach fabric pieces from a tattered and torn quilt lovingly sewn by my great great aunts. You will accent each fabric piece with items like vintage shell buttons, crocheted doilies handmade by my mom, a vintage glass vial filled with silver German glass glitter, an adorable plaster bust I created from a mold of a vintage bisque doll, beautifully dried tea roses and lots of other bits and baubles. Once completed, your shadow box will rest on an easel created from a vintage fork that’s accented with vintage lace and trims.

Please Note: If you wish to personalize your shadow box feel free to bring personal items you would like to incorporate into your project. After all, this is your project, I’m just here to inspire.

Supplies Needed: Glue Stick, Liquid Adhesive, Fabric Adhesive, Jet Black Archival Ink, and Acrylic Blocks (I will have some to share but you might want to bring your own), Baby Wipes

Tools Needed: Paint Brush, Sewing Needle, Scissors, Sanding Block or Sand Paper

Optional Items: Vintage Photo Distress Ink (If you wish to distress the vintage sheet music a bit more this shade works great)

Home for Christmas

Class Description: In this Home for Christmas class I will show you how to create three old fashioned Putz style houses using patterned papers from the new Graphic45 12 Days of Christmas line. Once all three houses are built and accented with Stickles and glitter you will group them on a decorative acrylic platter covered with faux snow and sisal trees to complete a miniature winter themed neighborhood.

As a bonus I will show you how easy it is to bleach sisal trees at home if you wish for yours to be off white in color. And a vintage Christmas project would not be complete without including a few vintage mercury glass ornaments. I will show you how easy it is to turn these ornaments into photo holders to display a few of your favorite holiday photos.

Please Note: The vintage mercury glass ornaments will vary in shape, size and color. If you wish to personalize your Home for Christmas project feel free to bring small miniature items you may have to adorn your Home for Christmas neighborhood as well as any small beads to accent your trees if you so wish.

Supplies Needed: Strong Liquid Adhesive, Platinum Stickles, Pencil

Tools Needed: Scissors, Scallop Scissors

Optional Items: Vintage Photo Distress Ink (If you wish to distress the edges of your houses)
