KC Willis Camp Collage

Just wanted to remind you bloggers about the KC Willis Camp Collage online class You can still sign up and it's a really fun class. I posted about my piece last week and several of my friends have signed up and have been having a ball making pieces. I have only had time for my one piece but plan on making more for gifts for family.

The videos KC posted are wonderful and really show you how she does her art. If your not into Western art plan on using a photo of what you like. That's what I did. Use vintage photos that you don't even know the people or a family one like I did. You use items for embellishment that you already have or you can buy new ones. It's fun to figure out what your going to use in adding that special touch to your photo.

You can always go to KC's website and check out her pieces she has for sale. She has more than just Western style.

KC Willis Class

I am taking an online class from KC Willis . It's called KC Willis Collage Camp . I believe you can still sign up and it is well worth it!! She has videos to watch on how she makes her wall pieces and they really are great. Lots of info and it's not a hard process. I have been busy with other things and had collected all my supplies but had not had time to work on a project. So last week I started and here is my end result. Not sure if I will add anything else to the piece though. I really like her process and the pieces she sells on her website. I go for more of her Victorian or Collage crazy type art than her cowboys and cowgirls. But all of it is good. Go check out the camp website and her website.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. I received breakfast in bed from my son, these beautiful tulips and a great dinner from my husband. It was a good day!

Took Duke for a walk down by the lake and played ball with a golf ball. He loves for me to throw the ball and he chases it. Then waits for me to come get it from him or chase him to get it. He is so funny!

Made sure I got a photo with Blair. My baby is growing up so fast!
